Pecs, Extreme Postures, and Foam Rolling – Movement Debrief Episode 81

Movement Debrief Episode 81 is in the books. Below is a copy of the video for your viewing pleasure, and audio if you can’t stand looking at me.

Here is the set list:

  • Are pecs still useful in improving lower thorax variability?
  • Do you still use pec squeezes in treatment?
  • With extreme kyphosis or thoracic spine flattening, what test results are expected?
  • What treatment recommendations are there for these posture types?
  • Should visual postural changes be expected in these folks?
  • Is self-myofascial release useful?
