Shoulder Injury Prevention - Pec Minor Tightness and Stretching Video

Posted on 17 Mar 2009 15:01

Pectoralis minor tightness can be associated with pain between the shoulder blades which causes the rhomboids to be in a constant overworked/stretched position.

The pectoralis major, minor, and lattisumus dorsi may be overactive and overshort. This can lead to shoulder problems but it is a very common cause to pain in the rhomboids, which is being pulled on and being forced to pull against this in a stretched position…resulting in some very angry rhomboids.

If this is you..view the vid. Don’t forget that there may be trigger points in the rhomboids themselves but don’t try stretching the rhomboids or the general area in an attempt to get rid of the pain. It may “feel good” but it will make the problem worse.
