Thoracic Spine Extension Mobilization – Foam Roller

  • HOW: Start in a sitting position with your knees bent, feet flat on the ground and a foam roller lying on the ground behind you at about shoulder level. You can either interlock your hands behind your neck or cross your arms across your chest. Keep your hips on the ground as you lean gently back into the roller bringing your shoulders, head, and neck down over the roller. Carefully work up and down the length of your mid back by lifting your hips up, rolling back, and extending over the foam roll.
  • FEEL: You should feel some pressure and stretch in the middle portion of your spine. 
  • COMPENSATION: Don’t go too fast, go slow and controlled over the foam roller.
