Release Tight Shoulders

This is a look at how to use a massage ball to release a tight shoulder. Specifically, how to work out hypertonicity through the rhomboids and the muscles that make up the bulk of the posterior shoulder region - teres minor, infraspinatus, posterior deltoid, and the lats.

The ball used in this video can be found here:

Ensuring healthy length and tone through these tissues allows for optimal shoulder mobility through all ranges, including those that involve having the arms overhead.

I used to do this and somehow stopped and watching this video is making me look for my ball. I used a tennis ball. This one looks bigger but I think I'll start with the tennis ball and see if that works as well. Thank you Dr. Kim
