Today we show you how to get your mid back moving.
Stiffness in the thoracic spine creates more stress in the neck and in the low back - as well as typically creating the rolled forward shoulder position.
With the shoulders rolled forward we end up tighter in the chest and prone to more shoulder and neck aches - so i think this simple exercise is great.
Although the video shows how to do this with a foam roller - if you are particularly sensitive or very limited in motion - you could try this over a folded up or rolled up towel.
Think of this exercise as slowly introducing movement to the region rather than trying to ram motion into the area - its safer and more effective in the long term.
Whilst generally safe - this exercise is not for everyone - so if in doubt - get yourself checked out.
As with all of our Move Better Monday videos if you like it share it - or like our facebook page or instagram page to see all of our new videos as they come out.
Thanks - and enjoy
