–elbow technique (new!)
–scapular rotation: scapular tip pushed medially, acromion inferiorly (open-book)
–vertical pull (Spaso): lift arm vertically, fully externally rotate, and pull toward ceiling
–external rotation (Kocher): slowly rotate externally with humerus parallel to torso, then maintain externally rotate until cross midline
–lateral extension (Milch): while externally rotated and providing traction on the humerus, slowly extend laterally until above 90′
–traction-countertraction: tie sheets so that traction is pulled on humerus while body in place
–passive traction (Stimson): apply weight to extremity while pt prone (for young healthy pts only)
–oscillating method (Fares): while keeping traction, oscillate up and down while slowly extending laterally. Best if kept extremity in external rotation.
–up-close-and-personal (Cunningham): pt’s hand on your ipsil shoulder, put downward pressure on their elbow. With free hand, massage biceps and rotator cuff muscles.
