Your rotator cuff (not cup, btw) is comprised of 4 small--but important--muscles that start at your shoulder blade and connect to different areas at the top of your arm. They’re the muscles that orchestrate the relationship between the bones of the shoulder to allow you to move through your full range without pain.
Pain and tightness can plague this area from overuse, poor posture, or simply from living life without giving this area some occasional love.
A Towel Stretch is one great way of giving a couple of these important rotator cuff muscles a safe stretch. If you are someone or know someone who’s having trouble getting your hands behind your back, this stretch is especially important.
Follow Dr. Alex as he takes you through the stretch with all the important techniques.
