Lat Soft Tissue Mobilization

  • HOW: In a sidelying position place a foam roller just underneath your Lat’s, which are a big muscle that are just underneath the side of your shoulder. You have the option of rolling up and down, from side to side, or performing a pin and stretch. Work around this area and see what feels good for you. Focus on your breathe as you perform these mobilizations.
  • FEEL: It is common for the soft tissue in this area to be sensitive. There are many nerves that run around this region, do NOT continue if you feel numbness and tingling. Take a quick break until that sensation diminishes.
  • COMPENSATION: Don’t roll the ball too fast or too slow, find the right speed that fits your best needs.
