For all exercises: Using the power in your opposite arm, bring the stiff arm up as far as it is comfortable. Start holding it for 5 seconds and then work up to where you can hold it for a count of 10. Breathe slowly and deeply while the arm is moved. Repeat this stretch ten times, trying to help the arm up a little higher each time.
