Self Administered Soft Tissue Release of the Lev Scap using a Tennis Ball
Often if you sit at a desk for long periods or drive for long periods then you’ll no doubt suffer with tense and painful shoulders. Usually you will find myofascial trigger points and knots within the lev cap, upper trap and supraspinatus that can be very painful.
A great way to release this tension, trigger points and pain is to use a tennis ball.
Perform the Lev Scap 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. You then want to stretch the muscles as shown in the video.
