Some postural changes following Myofascial Release and @functionalpatterns
applied breathing techniques.
During a meeting we decided to crack into a chronic dysfunction one of my colleagues has within his right shoulder. Within 30 minutes using deep myofascial techniques and applied breathing we were able to see some pretty cool decompressive changes within his structure. Moving forward, a change of habits, and training/rehabbing with intent is needed to cement these changes in.
NOTE: First pic - relaxed posture, Second pic - active potential posture (left before, right after)
Notice in both the relaxed and active potential postures the amount of creasing, folds, dimples, and lines within his musculature (right shoulder and back) in the left pic. These are generally signs of compression, hypertonicity, and, dysfunction. Notice on the right picture, the creasing has diminished, the shoulder itself is less compressed, more elevated, and is no longer stuck in a retracted position. The rhomboids and upper traps are less hypertonic, and the lat is able to perform its role to greater ability.
