How to get mobility of your thoracic spine
Afternoon guys I wanted to demonstrate today one of the best ways to mobilise a thoracic spine when it is stiff. Thoracic spine sits in the middle part of the back. It gets stiff with pretty much any human on the planet with the gravitation pull down into this position. Stiffness here causes shoulders, neck tension and lower backs. So a half foam roller is my weapon of choice. Simply lay back across it at shoulder blade height, bra strap height for females, and put your arms out at shoulder height. Knees must be bent up and you can take the arms above your head to increase the load. Spend 5 to10 minutes on it working through the different spots. So that is mobilising the thoracic spine have fun with it.
