Research has shown that manipulation of the thoracic spine can be beneficial for the neck (Read more) and shoulder pain (Read more). So it only stands to reason that improving mobility at this crucial area of the spine could be helpful for patients who complain about neck or shoulder pain. In addition, getting more range of movements through the thoracic spine has an impact on areas upstream and downstream the body.
We have prepared 3 home-based exercises that you could try if you ever experience neck/shoulder pain or stiffness. You may try this routine for 2 to 3 times a day or you may try them in your warmup or cool down.
Please follow the routine as is shown in the video and feel free to contact us for any inquiry.

Dublin Sports Injury Clinic is a physical therapy clinic based in Pearse Street, Dublin 2. We have a holistic approach to our assessment and treatment. The initial assessment helps us to explore the cause of your injury and help you to get pain free shortly and stop any further injuries. We will design a customized training program for you to start with, and we will coach you and monitor your progress closely. We will prescribe relative rest or modified activities as required. Depending on the individual requirement, we apply manual therapy accompanied by stretching to restore tissue elasticity and reduce the strain in the muscle-tendon unit with joint motion.
