Prone trap Technique 59of💯 Upper trap muscle is commonly facilitated and tight. As Janda pointed out with the upper cross syndrome- the upper trap is one of the key muscles of the tight line combined with the pectorals. By working the upper traps in this prone position this also allows us to create some relative extension in and around the cervico- thoracic junction. This junction Is key commonly clients present with joint dysfunction in this area Generally the facet joints are stuck open (in this area) and will not close so by placing the client prone and working superior to inferior we are working the softtissue but also creating extensions closure of the facet joints. 🔑 ask the client to start in a comfortable prone position 🔑 apply the pressure then ask the client to reach the arm down towards the foot to create shoulder depression this creates a stretch on the upper trapezius 🔑 Head movement is added last to accentuate the stretch of the myofascial tissues #massagetherapist #crossfit #uppertraps #uppercrosssyndrome #janda #posturaltraining #fascialstretchtherapy

Upper Crossed Syndrome (UCS) 🙅🏻‍♂️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♂️is the fancy name for bad posture. UCS is characterized by shortened upper trapezius and levator scapulae muscles as well as lengthened cervical flexor muscles!

Back Health in Corporate Offices ——————————————————————————— . So I know I’ve been on a bit of the Social Media Hiatus! I’ve been in the middle of an intense exam period in my second year of my Doctorate of Chiropractic program (8 exams down, 5 more to go!) . I recently was asked to present at Providence HealthCare to their employees around Back Care . I’ve compiled the seminar into a 6 smaller highlights - and here part 1 • • • Here I briefly introduce the importance of \\ functional application of posture // . It’s not enough to “sit up straight”. We need to focus on a variety of aspects as to: ✅Why it’s important (so we actually DO work on it) ✅What steps we can take outside of our office chair to improve these mechanisms . .

Millennials: Year of the Quasimodo. . TLDR: Don’t feed into the vicious cycle the fitness industry has become. Train with balance and proper posture or you’ll pay for it with large medical bills and a limited life. . . Think about it.. You spend a majority of your day texting, scrolling or surfing various facets of the internet… We’re talking hours of being in a position, where your head is angled down and pushed forward.. To make matters worse, we have this urge to answer the question “How much ya bench?” Those poor neglected medial traps of yours have no choice but to stay elongated and weak (Upper-Cross Syndrome). Over time, this compensation continues to travel downstream. Meaning, that your shoulder blades and ribcage will follow the head. Add 10 years to this problem.. BAM! You’ve finally reached your final form as the hunchback of Norte dame! Want to reverse this? It’s simple, train the muscles you don’t see in the mirror and work on maintaining the ideal posture as much as possible… Need pointers? Don’t ask for help from a “fitness enthusiast”🙄🙄. Reach out to someone who has put in the time (Degree or high form of certification📖) to educate you on how to lead a long healthy life. People have no problem with bragging about their 300lb bench press but can’t keep their 10lb head aligned with their spine. 😂 Rant over. #health #wellness #posture #fit#fitness #education #strength #benchpress #uppercrosssyndrome #weightlifting #millennials #technology #gym #bodybuilding #workout #muscle #functionaltraining #fit #healthylifestyle #healthyspine #balance #gains #broscience #exercise #fitnesseducated
