Our user asked: "Hello. Just wanted to know what type of excercise that I should do to rehab by collar bone. I have full motion back except lifting my arm straight up and across to the other shoulder. What excercise or stretches can help with that. Thank you"

Ask a PT Response: "For my patients that have similar conditions such as yours, I would have them work on PNF UE D1 flexion patterns for stretching and strengthening to help them achieve increase range across the body. You can see an example of this pattern at  or on YouTube. This exercise pattern can also be performed in standing and with both resistive tubing and weights as well."

  1. Hello, you should try these exercises for a broken collar bone
  2. Pendulum exercise: In this exercise, you bend forward at the waist and let your injured arm hang down toward the ground. ...

  3. Grip strength exercise: Squeeze a small ball (a racquetball works well) with gentle but even pressure several times per day.
