Routine #1: This is Movement Medicine for Shoulders, Upper Back & Neck

Shoulders, Upper Back and Neck

Your exercises for this routine are:

  1. Spinal reset with breathing and arm circles
  2. Cross spine with arches and then lift and roll
  3. Upper shoulder release with the Tennis balls
  4. Supine elbow kisses
  5. Quardraped scap pushups
  6. Standing shoulder movements with a strap
  7. Wall neck

 

We direct our focus to the upper back, neck, and shoulders, an area that constantly needs attention and care. Common conditions associated with this area are rounded shoulders, head forward posture, achy necks and painful shoulder joints.

The exercises we chose in this routine are about drawing your attention to the shoulder blades and upper back. As you perform the exercises, focus your attention on the feeling of the shoulder blades as they move and slide around your ribcage throughout the exercises. The realization of this movement is a key component of this routine

Our goals for this routine are:

·       Begin creating body awareness through movements of the shoulders and upper back.

·       Begin to reset and realign the spine and shoulder girdle.

·       Improve chest and shoulder mobility.

Spinal reset, the first technique, is fantastic for opening your spine and drawing your shoulders back. Many people really appreciate coming home from work and performing this technique, plus the arm motions, as a stand-alone exercise to release stress from the day.

The cross-spine position will bring more space and movement to your upper back as you introduce new motion to your spinal joints. If there is discomfort in this exercise the roller is likely too low towards your waist. Move it up an inch or two and it should feel nice.

The trapezius release is perfect for anyone who has stiff upper shoulders and neck and something you may want to do through out your day for added benefit.
