Shoulders Unbound: Fascia’s Influence on Strength, Mobility & Flexibility | The Fascia Masters, Season 2 – Episode 16

Shoulder problems are a very prevalent injury. In these injuries, it is important to remember that the fascial system plays a pivotal role in manipulating and torquing the entire body, particularly affecting ball-and-socket joints like the shoulders. By understanding the dynamic interplay of stability and mobility in the shoulders, you can see the importance of releasing specific areas of the body to address misalignments and foster shoulder health. 

Collapsed ribcages, compensations, and the role of foundational elements like the feet and pelvis all create a domino effect in the far-reaching consequences of neglecting the full-body fascial connections. Collapsed ribcages can lead to internal shoulder rotation, affecting range of motion and causing discomfort. It is important to increase energy to the affected area rather than following traditional methods like the RICE method (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation). By connecting to the diaphragmatic breath and applying targeted pressure through techniques like chair work and Block Therapy, it is important to support the body's natural inflammatory process and foster healing in the wake of acute injuries. Collapsed ribcages, hip tilts, and even issues in the lower body can influence shoulder health, so it is so important to view the body as a connected system rather than isolated parts.

By unraveling the complexities of the fascial system and its impact on the entire body, we want to empower you to embark on a journey of releasing, rebuilding, and fostering overall well-being. Learn more about shoulder health, injuries and how to support those injuries on today's podcast.
