STRETCHING FOR PAIN RELIEF - ANTERIOR DELTOID

 

Posted by Judith Winer on Oct 27, 2016
The deltoid, along with supraspinatus and associated rotator cuff muscles, will regularly develop myofascial trigger points as result of reduced core efficiency. 
Failure to translate forces from the lower body to the shoulder will result in arthrokinematic stress and the formation of active myofascial trigger points. The restoration of core neuromuscular efficiency will provide a foundation for myofascial trigger point therapy, utilizing neuromuscular therapy and correctly prescribed exercise.
Deltoid Trigger Points
Pain is felt as a dull ache for the most part, with increased pain on contraction of the muscle or when attempts are made to move the arm. Pain is most often mistaken for bursitis or rotator cuff injury.
It is worthwhile checking the muscles that refer pain into the deltoid (SITS, pectorals, and scalenes) as the true source of deltoid pain. Deltoid myofascial trigger points are more often than not satellite myofascial trigger points.
Stretching
We like this stretch because it's so easy to perform and incredibly effective .... especially for those who spend hours working at their desks in front of computers, long distance drivers, or anyone involved with heavy lifting in their work.

 

Technique
Stand upright and clasp your hands together behind your back. Slowly lift your hands upward.
Do not lean forward while lifting your hands upward. 
Muscles Being Stretched
Primary muscle: Anterior deltoid.
Secondary muscles. Biceps brachii. Brachialis. Coracobrachialis.
Injury Where Stretch May Be Useful
Dislocation. Subluxation. Acromioclavicular separation. Sternoclavicular separation. Impingement syndrome. Rotator cuff tendonitis. Shoulder bursitis. Frozen shoulder(adhesive capsulitis). Chest strain. Pectoral muscle insertion inflammation.
