The glenohumeral joint is placed in the resting position if conservative techniques are indicated or approximating restricted range of motion if more aggressive techniques are indicated. 3. The clinician can use a belt to hold the patient’s scapula against the trunk, especially in the presence of scapulothoracic hypermobility or an increase in movement at the scapulothoracic joint with shoulder elevation. 4. The clinician is at the patient’s side facing the glenohumeral joint. 5. The clinician can support the patient’s forearm and hand by positioning them between the clinician’s upper arm and trunk.
