Do we have shoulder problems? Do we really?

#nerdoutnovember and we're talking about shoulder problems... or are they? If you have shoulder pain, make sure you look at your thoracic spine. The thoracic spine has to have extension in order for the scapula to completely retract and allow full overhead movement. Poor t-spine extension can cause restricted and painful overhead movement. Forcing overhead position without proper t-spine extension can cause capsule instability and cause all sorts of problems! So work on that spine extension!
