Taping of the serratus posterior inferior muscle and erectus spinae ..
➡ You use the serratus posterior inferior muscle when you straighten the back, twist at the waist and exhale... If weakened, because you neglect to train those muscles, they will get achy and stiff, and it gets worse when you sleep on a soft mattress for example (can form hardened "knots" in the muscle, which are called #triggerpoints).
➡ The #serratus posterior inferior is the #muscle that cramps when you stretch too far when trying to reach something overhead, and when the muscle get tight, they can contribute to breathing difficulty... .
➡ The erector spinae (a bundle of muscles and tendons) lies on each side of the vertebral column and extends alongside the lumbar, thoracic and cervical sections of the #spine.. It activates during extension from flexion, i.e. standing upright from bending forward and provides for side-to-side rotation. An injury or strain to this muscle may cause back spasms, pain and headache..
🔸My client here has been complaining about difficulties in breathing and a discomfort in her mid section of her back and below the ribs.. .
After massaging my client and doing some effective stretching at her home, I taped those two explained muscle areas for a smooth muscle movement, assisting in movements and making space for better blood flow (better and faster recovery).. .
