Mobility Monday: Prioritizing Shoulder Mob

To speed this one up you can skip the first minute of them playing Wii but thats up to you.

Anyway, down to business.  Shoulder problems are very common and seem to be one of the hardest injuries to deal with and fix.  Often times the thoracic spine and its ability to be mobile can be a contributing factor that is overlooked.  Lacking movement through this section of the spine can lead to many problems in terms of shoulder placement and how everything sits in the glenohumeral joint and how the scapula moves across the upper rib cage.

This video gives you and idea of what to prioritize and where to start.

Things You Can Fix:
-Upper back pain
-Generalized shoulder pain
-Shoulder displacement to the anterior
-Posture problems
