You asked and I filmed! Here is the long awaited Eclectic Strategies for Thoracic Mobility!
Why choose the thoracic spine? It does not hurt often compared to the lumbar and cervical spines, and if it does, it may be referred from the cervical spine.
- in the joint by joint approach, working on this often dysfunctional (mobility) area may help promote and improve mobility/pain in the adjacent lumbar and thoracic areas
- almost ALL ADLs need trunk rotation, it comes from the thoracic spine
- mobility in this area also has been shown to help shoulder impingement and frozen shoulder
- it may assist in diaphragmatic breathing
Enjoy! It's 20+ minutes of thoracic goodness!
