The shoulder is a pretty complex joint with a lot of muscles attaching to it. 💪
So when it comes to figuring out why a shoulder may be sore or tight, it can get a little complicated. 🤔
One muscle, called the subscapularis muscle, attaches underneath the shoulder blade on one end, and the inside of the shoulder joint on the other end.
This muscle works to turn the shoulder inwards – so postures that leave us in this position (i.e. computer work, desk work etc.) can cause this muscle to tighten up, and lead to shoulder pain or tension. 👩💻
Here is a way to target and stretch this muscle – don’t forget to do both sides!
Let me know how it goes! 🗣💬
