Home Exercises for Elite Health Services patients; as prescribed by our team of Manual Physical Therapists.
Joseph Vella, PT, DPT demos this technique.
Scapulae, commonly called the “Shoulder Blades”, are the triangular bones on the back of the shoulders. They are held in place three groups of muscles, which help move the shoulder joint.
How To Do It
Shrug your shoulders up 2 inches
Rotate your arms and shoulders so that your pinkies are pointing forward
This will allow your shoulder blades to move closer together
While keeping the shoulder blades close together, allow them to drop down your back towards your back pockets
Lifting the shoulder blades too high or not high enough
Not fully rotating arms and shoulders while shoulder blades are elevated
