    It's usually a sign of a twisted wiper arm, a slight "tweak" either clockwise or anti-clockwise (trial and error) should sort it. Unless your wipers are completely worn out and the rubber's deteriorating in which case they just stick

    Check the pivot points of the metal arms aren't loose. You can nip them up slighty in a vice if you're careful.
