Shoulder Pain: Pectorals Muscle Stretch

Shoulder Pain: Pectorals Muscle Stretch


Stand beside a door frame or corner of a wall. Keeping your back straight and your inner
core engaged, bring your arm up against the wall with the elbow and shoulder bent at 90
degrees. With the arm planted on the wall, draw your
opposite shoulder back followed by your torso in a straight line. Keep the back straight and core engaged. Hold this for 30 seconds and repeat 3 times
on each side 2 times per day. The tightness in the Pectoralis muscles can
cause abnormal movement in your shoulder and can give you pain and dysfunction. Non optimal computer desk and sitting postures
and performing activities and sports with a repetitive nature like climbing, volleyball,
or any throwing sports can cause these imbalances. If you have pain or if you’re unsure about
how these exercises affect your shoulder pain, consult your physiotherapist before continuing.
