Self range of motion exercises. Randy has mild muscle tone and no active movement in his right arm. If he lets his arm hang and does not stretch it out, the muscles may tighten more, and contractures may develop at the joints. The OT can teach Randy how to complete self range of motion exercises by locking his fingers together and using his unaffected arm to help his affected arm.
