The 2 Minute Fix: Safe Shoulder Series – Scapular Stability

This post is part of a new series I’m calling “The 2 Minute Fix” which will be short videos to teach people easy self-care solutions to common movement faults.

The Problem:
When people think of chiropractic care, they often think of spinal issues. And while that is my specialty, the number one most common reason someone will end up in my office is shoulder pain. One of the culprits seems to be neurologically inhibited, or stretch weakened scapular retractors. In lay-term, the muscles that stabilize and pull the the shoulder blade together posteriorly are chronically “turned off.” They’re not firing well because our society lives in a forward head, forward rounded shoulder position that enables this dysfunction.

The Fix:
In this video I demonstrate a simple, but effective exercise called the “Y, T, L” exercises. Follow along and it will help activate the rhomboids and trapezius muscles that will help protect the shoulder in many movement patterns.

Yours in Health,

Dr. Scott
