Foam Rolling for Improved Motion with Overhead Lifting and Squatting

Updated: Nov 14, 2019

This is the best way I've found to foam roll your mid-back (thoracic spine) to help improve your motion with lifting overhead without pain or to help you squat without rounding your mid back.

Do this especially if you have shoulder pain with lifting or reaching overhead because I've found great success with addressing this in my patients than almost anything else!

Too many of my patients who have shoulder or low back pain do exercises or stretches or get treatment just for that painful area. Mid back stiffness can be the "silent culprit" that, if left untreated, can be what keeps those other areas in compensation mode and therefore still in pain.
