physiotherapy Diary 5: Thoracic outlet syndrome

I got this problem after doing cable rolls. The correct way to do this is shoulders down and back. I did it shoulders back and down and screwed myself. It could not have been the weight as I was doing only ten lbs. So some ways to fix this

1. A youtube video explains it well

2. Some links from the livestrong foundation

d. href=”http://www.livestrong.com/article/444075-list-of-physical-therapy-exercises-to-treat-thoracic-outlet-syndrome/” title=”Four”>

3. A write up on self myofascial release: https://www.oakham.rutland.sch.uk/uploadedFiles/Website/Sport/Strength_and_Conditioning/PDFs/Self%20Myofascial%20Release.pdf

4. Sleep on your back, not on your sides. This is another way people screw themselves

5. While working on the computer, make it a habit to have good posture. The head/neck should not lean forward. It should be aligned with the rest of the body.

6. Shoulders pulled down while typing using mouse.
