Radiating arm pain and numbness can be frightening at first, yet it’s often something you can improve at home, and maybe with this very exercise‼️
Common sources of radiating arm pain can originate from your pec minor (as seen in this video), from your scalene muscles on the side of your neck, and from disc bulges in your lower neck.
As you can see here, the pec minor connects from the part of your scapula that extends all the way to the front of your chest, and then the muscle angles downward👇 and inward 👈and connects to the ribs. This muscle is involved with shoulder blade movements and also with breathing!
You can develop adhesions or trigger points within this muscle from breathing malfunction or from poor shoulder mechanics—which can be greatly improved through our upcoming 𝗦𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗺 (𝗹𝗮𝘂𝗻𝗰𝗵 𝗱𝗮𝘁𝗲 2/7)‼️
Simply grab a rad ball @radrollerteam and place it on your pec. Now, lean into a wall and as you take deep breaths, try to find those super tender spots by pressing the rad ball into the wall. This exercise may actually re-trigger your symptoms, which is ok, or it might hurt, so take it slow, but take some time to explore this muscle and get ‘er to loosen up. 🔥
**Also, could we just take a moment to appreciate Doc. Mike's creative mind?!💡He literally ripped out the door from his home just to demonstrate how to properly perform this massage for you! Who would've thought, right? We’re sure Coach Katie (his wife) was a fan of this idea, too! 🤣
