Thoracic Spine Foam Rolling

  • HOW: Get set-up with your butt supported on the ground with a foam roller supporting your mid back. The goal is to make a โ€˜fulcrumโ€™ that we can use to mobilize your mid back. Position the foam roller in your mid back and drive the upper half of your back โ€œoverโ€ the foam roller while exhaling. Move the object to different areas of your mid back to mobilize multiple segments.
  • FEEL: You should feel moderate amounts of pressure in your mid back. If you feel a โ€œpopโ€, that is totally normal and okay.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not put the foam roller on your lower back, just your upper back. Keep your core engaged and do not overly arch in your lower back.
