Total PT – Shoulder Pain? Chest tight? Check your Rib-cage!

Are your Pecs tight❓Do you have shoulder pain❓If so, you need to check your ribcage orientation (we can do that☝️) before you start jamming away with a lacrosse ball or doing that doorway stretch from 40 years ago.

If your ribcage is oriented to the R – trying to bring that L arm out to the side as shown won’t work well since the L Pecs will already be on stretch – cue top pic‼️

After several breathing/repositioning drills to re-orient the ribcage to mid-line – 💥 – cue bottom pic‼️….

Pec is placed on more slack afterwords and then my patient is able to bring her arm into horizontal abduction with much less tension & much more range!😮🎉
