Self Administered Soft Tissue Release of the Posterior Deltoid using a Tennis Ball
Often you’ll find that the posterior deltoid muscles, along with the external rotators (infraspinatus / theres minor) form adhesions and myofacial trigger points. This will cause dysfunction within the shoulder mechanics, resulting in pain and discomfort.
A great way to release this tension, trigger points and pain is to use a tennis ball.
Perform the posterior deltoid release technique for 2 – 3 minutes working all the soft tissue around the shoulder, hold on any areas of tenderness for about 30 seconds or until you feel a release and then move onto the next area.
