Supraspinatus SA Static Release

Supraspinatus SA Static Release is a safe and effective rehabilitative exercise designed to help strengthen the shoulder muscles. This dynamic, low-load exercise works to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and enhance muscular coordination in the shoulder joint. By utilizing a gentle, low-load static hold, Supraspinatus SA Static Release can activate small muscles groups that are often neglected during the rehabilitation process. This simple and effective exercise is perfect for individuals who have experienced shoulder pain or

This is Brent, President of B2C Fitness,
00:00:0200:00:05
and we're talking about
00:00:0500:00:09
self-administered static release techniques for those muscles just above
00:00:0900:00:13
our shoulder blade. Now, in the last video we did levator scapulae, in this video
00:00:1300:00:17
we're going to do a little trickier one, which is suprapinatus. So, I'm going to
00:00:1700:00:21
have Laura come out and help me demonstrate this one. Now, your supraspinatus
00:00:2100:00:26
lies in your supraspinous fossa. The way to find that is, if you
00:00:2600:00:31
find the superior angle of your scapula, find the ridge, you'll find this little
00:00:3100:00:36
line that goes across the back of your shoulder blade. Now, just above that line
00:00:3600:00:44
is your super spinous fossa. If you go from the corner and find where that
00:00:4400:00:49
little spine kind of divots this way, that's generally where trigger points
00:00:4900:00:53
for the supraspinatus are. Now, the one big problem we have is, we have big
00:00:5300:00:57
monster trap in the way, so we need to find a way to deactivate that, get it to
00:00:5700:01:01
kind of soften down and go to mush so we can get deep. In this case, all we're
00:01:0100:01:06
going to do is have Laura passively, laterally flex her head in the same
00:01:0600:01:09
direction. So we're going to use the same technique we used for levator scapulae,
00:01:0900:01:14
we're going to use the softball. We're going to find this little spot, we're going to
00:01:1400:01:18
lean back against the wall to apply pressure, she can use her opposite hand
00:01:1800:01:22
to stabilize. Make sure this arm is nice and relaxed. She's going to laterally flex
00:01:2200:01:27
her head and look for the most tender point.
00:01:2800:01:33
And, sure enough, she found it. So, we're going to hold this for 30 seconds to 2 minutes,
00:01:3300:01:39
or until we feel a release, ideally. We want those trigger points to completely
00:01:3900:01:42
go away. Once again, I talked about not doing this on the floor, it doesn't work out
00:01:4200:01:47
so well. Against the wall seems to apply the right amount of pressure, and be
00:01:4700:01:50
comfortable enough to sustain for the amount of time it's going to take to
