Posterior Shoulder SA Static Release

Posterior Shoulder Static Release is a technique used to release tension and tightness in the muscles and soft tissues of the shoulder area. It involves gentle stretching and massage to release muscle tightness and encourage increased mobility of the shoulder joint. It helps to reduce inflammation and correct muscle imbalances, improve posture and flexibility, and restore normal shoulder range of motion. This technique can be used to treat shoulder pain, shoulder stiffness, and shoulder dysfunction.

This is Brent, President of B2C Fitness and
00:00:0200:00:06
we're working on self-administered,
00:00:0600:00:11
static release, in this case of the posterior shoulder which has a tendency to
00:00:1100:00:15
get tight in those individuals with upper body dysfunction. With Mike here it has a
00:00:1500:00:22
separate effect, which is not so good for his sport. Mike is a baseball pitcher and the
00:00:2200:00:27
lack of ability to internally rotate, of course these muscles being affected and
00:00:2700:00:31
not being able to eccentrically deccelerate internal rotation as he throws, can have
00:00:3100:00:36
a huge effect on his performance, his longevity, and of course, increase his risk
00:00:3600:00:40
for injuries. We want to take care of this problem. Mike is in this position, as you
00:00:4000:00:44
can see, to release his posterior shoulder, but I'm going to have him kneel up,
00:00:4400:00:47
kind of show you the anatomy of the posterior shoulder, and kind of show you
00:00:4700:00:51
how to set this up before we get into position for his other shoulder.
00:00:5100:00:57
Now, the structures that are likely tight are his posterior deltoid,
00:00:5700:01:05
underneath that is posterior capsule, and then his teres minor. This area right
00:01:0500:01:12
here as a propensity to shorten and drive the humeral head forward. So all
00:01:1200:01:17
we've had Mike do is lay on his side, and try to get the ball on the posterior aspect of
00:01:1700:01:23
his armpit basically, his axel. We're going to get right in this area here, search
00:01:2300:01:30
for the most tender spot. I'm going to go ahead and get you into position for the other side this time.
00:01:3300:01:36
He's going to lie on his side, the position of his legs really doesn't matter although
00:01:3600:01:41
he probably wants them slightly bent for comfort. He's going to get his arms stretched out,
00:01:4100:01:45
but you don't want that arm in a position where he actually has to hold himself up
00:01:4500:01:49
on this arm. This arm needs to be relaxed, so he needs to be using this arm for support.
00:01:4900:01:55
He's going to find that tender spot, which I think, Mike, have you found the tender spot? -I certainly have.
00:01:5500:01:58
He's found that tender spot, and he's going to hold it for a minimum of 20 to 30
00:01:5800:02:03
seconds just like all of our other static release techniques
00:02:0300:02:10
or, ideally, until he feels some sort of release actually happening. If you
00:02:1000:02:15
hold this in a static position without any fidgeting long enough, you should
00:02:1500:02:19
actually feel that muscle let go a little bit, increasing extensibility, or greatly
