Passive Range of Motion Exercises

Passive: These exercise packages were designed to be used by the client's family/caregiver/support worker to assist in properly carrying out passive range of motion exercises with the client.

Self-Ranging: These exercise packages were designed to assist in properly carrying out self-ranging exercises for the post-stroke shoulder.

It is the intent of the authors that a regulated health professional will select the most appropriate exercises from these packages and provide them to their client. You will notice that there are separate packages for both the right and left sides.

We feel it is imperative that the second page of the package entitled 'Before Getting Started...' be provided with every package handed out, whether only one or multiple exercises are being prescribed, therefore please ensure you do so.
