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.
I’ve previously discussed shoulder impingement syndrome and the most common root cause of superior shoulder pain. Most of the time the offending muscular imbalance is subscapularis dysfunction. This muscle is easily treated in office with Active Release Technique, but I’ve yet to find a way to have patients continue care at home. Until now.
Using a banded activation and release, follow the demonstration in the video to help assist with breaking the spasm / dysfunction in the subscapularis. If you’re able, add a thumb to the underside of the scapula to help strip any adhesions away from the surrounding musculature.
Yours in Health,
