T-Spine Side-to-Side Smash:
Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor.
Place the roller behind your back at the base of your rib cage and tilt your pelvis a bit to protect your lower back.
Wrap your arms around your chest like a hug. Breathe well and slowly roll from side to side hunting for stiff or tender areas on either side of your spine.
Cross your arms the other way and repeat.
Continue to seesaw, breathing into sore or stiff areas, until you’ve experienced enough change, 3-5 minutes.
Lift your hips into a bridge position to increase the pressure as needed.
Mobility for the Neck, Shoulders and Spine
Stiff shoulders lead to a stiff neck! A stiff neck leads to stiff shoulders! And the innocent thoracic spine is trapped in the middle! But don’t be scared we can fix it! Whether you feel stress in your shoulders or your computer posture is less than ideal, we can mobilize the whole thoracic-cervical system to decrease pain, increase stability and optimize function.
Do you have a specific issue with your range-of-motion or mobility? Are you in pain or discomfort that is impacting your ability to move well?
