Directions: While sitting in a chair with your feet supported on the ground, place a fist over your chest (maintaining contact throughout the exercise) using the arm of the side you will be turning towards. Place your opposite hand over the fist. Turn as quickly and far as you can. Repeat as indicated by your prescribing therapist. This exercise requires adherence to the "Stoplight System."
Green: Motion or pain is improving with each repetition.
Yellow: Amount of motion before pain occurs, pain intensity, centralization of symptoms, pain that can be "walked off," or pain that disappears with return to starting position improves with each repetition.
Red: Pain begins to peripheralize and stays peripheralized or pain that is increased with performance and cannot be "walked off." - STOP EXERCISE
Note: exercises should only be performed if instructed by a properly trained health care practitioner.
