Upper Trap Soft Tissue Mobilization

  • HOW: Lean onto a lacrosse ball with your upper trap region, this is the muscle mass just above your shoulder blade. You have the option of rolling up and down or from side to side. 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.
