We make a ton of training videos for our staff and other PTs around the world. Occasionally we share them on our blog so those suffering needlessly can see how our hands-on physical therapy helps others to get back to the active lifestyles they want and deserve.
Below is one such video showing an example of treatment techniques for Distal Levator Scapulae and Infraspinatus Soft Tissue Mobilization
If you are dealing with pain and would like to know how we can help, call us at (512) 693-8849.
Video Transcription (please excuse grammatical errors and the conversational nature of the transcription):
“We’re going to start slowly to the left. There is a a lot of tension felt here at the lower segment of the upper trap coming down here to the levator scapulae attachment. This is a pretty common line of tension.
I’m taking it past that attachment over the infra spinatus and infraspinatus fascia because the fascia doesn’t just stop at the attachment. As a profession, we’ve got to stop this habit of thinking in terms of muscles starting and stopping in one spot but rather think of them as a continuous structure connected by the soft tissue called fascia.
So after the technique we retest the painful movement for improvement or changes. Ask the patient to look to the left as far as he or she can and check on how the person is feeling.”
