A quick tip to improve shoulder and neck function and reduce pain;
The Pec Minor gets ‘short’/’tight’ from our increasingly rounded shoulders and desk posture. This muscle can restrict shoulder and neck motion and causes tightness and pain around both these areas.
Try this quick release and test your shoulder range and neck rotation afterwards to see if there is an improvement.
If there is improvement this could be a great strategy for helping that day to day tightness from the desk or freeing up your shoulder before a gym workout.
We recommend office workers try this at lunch time to increase awareness around the area, relieve neck tension and reset posture.
We also recommend this gets done before a workout, particularly if there is overhead work planned. This release can give you those extra few degrees overhead and help with shoulder impingement symptoms.
