Performing swimmer's hovers in sidelying may allow your shoulder joint and shoulder blade to perform motions that could otherwise be clicky or painful compared to when your body's in an upright position. Can be helpful for people who have pain or impingement reaching behind their backs, elevating their arms or rotating their shoulders internally and externally. _ In this position, gravity assists your arm with some of these aforementioned painful motions as opposed to working against it when you're upright. Additionally, in sidelying your spine is relatively more relaxed, unloaded and easier to keep from compensating when moving your arm through your full available range of motion. A great way to recapture shoulder motions that are hard to access because of pain.
