Reduce your shoulder pain by a selective treatment of the chest muscle
Shoulder flow with Nele
The pectoralis major is described as a large breast muscle, which is strong and large. It covers the front rib area and consists of three parts. The pars clavicularis is the upper part and originates from the medial half of the clavicula (clavic bone). The pars sternocostalis originates from the sternum (breastbone) as well as from the cartilage of the second to sixth rib. The third part of the abdominal area is the abdominal pars, which originates from the tendon plate of the rectus abdominis (simple abdominal muscle). The fibers of the pectoralis major are attached to the Crista tuberculi majoris of the upper arm (bone ridge at the upper arm). Towards the arm, the fibers intersect, so that those coming from the bottom move further upwards in the upper arm than those coming from the collarbone. This twisting of the fibers creates an arc that forms the armpit in the front part.
The functions of the pectoralis major vary depending on the position of the arm. On the one hand, it is responsible for flexing the shoulder joint, i. e. lifting the arm forward, on the other hand, it pulls the arm closer to the body (adduction) and can further initiate the internal rotation. Furthermore, it raises the thorax (chest) and therefore presents itself as a part of the respiratory muscle.
His muscle fibers face a high risk of shortening, especially in classic office work, as the back assumes a round posture. On the other hand, too much stress leads to overloading. For example, the muscle is particularly stressed by bench presses or by backlash games and can no longer fully recover due to a short regeneration time. The result is tension, so that ot pulls the shoulders forward due to its limited elasticity. This can result in pain in the upper back and shoulders as well as between the shoulder blades.
Before we start: Please note that as a woman, triggering in the breast area requires special attention and you do not trigger the breast tissue. Tend to work more in the upper area towards the armpit and make sure that you only treat muscle tissue. In any case, we recommend that you discuss the treatment with the Triggerdinger with your doctor.
In order to eliminate pain and incorrect posture, it is necessary to relax the muscle by working on the trigger points. You can easily find the trigger points in this large muscle by palpation. To do this, form a “pistol” with your left index finger and thumb and position your index finger on your right shoulder. The area where your thumb is placed is usually where the tension is. Since trigger points can vary for each person, the point may be a few inches higher, lower, closer or farther away from the shoulder. We recommend that you start triggering the pectoral muscle while standing. To trigger the right side, stand in a crotch position in a doorway with your left leg in front. Position the Triggerding at chest level. Now when you put your weight on the Triggerding, your head sticks out past the door frame. This way you can vary and control the pressure. First let your arm hang loosely in the position. If you would like to integrate some movement take your right arm behind your back. On the floor you can put more weight and therefore pressure on the Triggerding and intensify the exercise. To do this, lie on the Triggerding and bring your arm behind your back and then stretched forward next to your head. Repeat the sequence of movements several times or stay in one place.
