Thoracic Spine

Updated: Nov 25, 2020



Hunched over a computer screen or stuck in the car all day means our thoracic spine is in to much flexion which causes poor posture and limited range of movement to our thoracic spine. This will often cause neck, shoulder, upper and lower back pain so we need to make sure we use movements that will encourage thoracic spine extension and rotation.

Please find the links below for the following two exercise demonstrations.
