As promised in our last video, this is something you can do on your own to help facilitate a normal rhythm of your scapula (shoulder blade).
Oftentimes, your shoulder blade can be limited in its motion due to tight muscles, poor posture, or limited mobility of your thoracic spine. This specific exercise will help loosen up the muscles that limit your shoulder blade motion.
You can use a tennis ball, golf ball or lacrosse ball. Adjust the pressure on the ball by using more or less body weight.
* This will NOT feel amazing at first! It can be quite tender where that ball is hitting! However, it should not hurt your shoulder at all. If you do have actual pain (not a lot of tenderness), don’t just push through it and ignore it.
Please let us know how it’s going and if you need anything from us. We’re here for you!
