To mobilize the joints of the spine and to increase range of motion, especially extension and rotation of the spine.



This is done as a gentle stretch, not a manipulation, so get feedback and don’t use any sudden thrusting movement.



Have your client prone with their arm abducted out 90 degrees.

Sit on your heel (if comfortable) with your client’s arm draped over your knee.

Do a torquing motion, pulling posterior and inferior on shoulder joint with your outside hand while pushing anterior and superior on the opposite side of spine with your inside hand.

This is done with your body weight so that the pulling is done by leaning back and the pushing by twisting your own spine.
