Side-lying Diagonal Arm Mobilization

Arms should be able to reach in diagonal lines forward and back with scapular connection at the ribcage in the back. Sometimes the movement becomes stuck, and we lose the gliding action of the arm causing pain at the shoulder or loss of range. To bring the functional arm movement pattern back it is easier to practice in a side-lying position, as gravity works in your favor to keep the movement smooth.
