Compensatory Strategies Can Develop When You Are Lacking Mobility. Shoulder pain can develop when your Scapula and/or your Gleno humeral Joint is lacking full range of motion pain. A rib cage flare can trick you into thinking you have full over head should range of motion. 

4 exercises that can help with shoulder mobility 
Kneeling Lat Stretch 8-10 reps
Eccentric Lat Stretch 8-10 reps
Kneeling Single Arm Lat Pull Down 10-15/side 1-3 sets
Dumbbell Resistance Band Bent Over Lat Row 10-15/side 1-3 sets.

Where and why you have shoulder pain is different for everyone. How we modify or what exercises we prescribe for physical therapy can vary depending on the injury diagnosis. Give these exercises a try to see if they help you gain shoulder mobility.

We had a great time working with @bprep_lacrosse earlier this spring! The PHYSIO team was able to go in and work on dynamic warm-ups, foundational movements, and foam rolling with @ontheflytherapy! 

We look forward to doing more work like this in the future 💪🏽 

Lastly for all athletes, it is crucial to have dynamic warm ups that mirror what we are doing in our actual game. At the end of warm ups we should be starting to work up a sweat and feeling our heart rates increase. If anyone has questions on warm ups or would like specific content on that, drop a comment below!

Hollow Body Hold Strengthens & Stabilizes Core & Lower Back Muscles. 

When done correctly this exercise benefits your posture and strengthens much needed muscles to prevent lower back pain. 

On a functional standpoint hollow body hold trains your core to resist arching your low back. 

Starting on the ground for hollow body hold uses the floor to perform an isometric contraction (static hold) training your abdominals to stabilize the mid section and increase power you can generate from your core. 

Mastering the hollow body hold position is good to then incorporate into our dynamic and higher level exercises.
