The importance of myofascial release in the following areas for #golfers
1. Triceps tie into shoulder mobility:
Triceps are a biarticulate muscle- meaning it is responsible for movement at both the elbow and the shoulder. The triceps extends the elbow and also extends the shoulder. when the shoulder is externally rotated the long head of the triceps acts in the motion of shoulder adduction.
2. Rhomboids tie into scapular stability and shoulder mobility "Both rhomboids (major and minor) also act to retract the scapula, pulling it towards the vertebral column. The rhomboids work collectively with the levator scapulae muscles to elevate the medial border of the scapula, downwardly rotating the scapula with respect to the glenohumeral joint." 3. Teres major/minor
The teres major is a medial rotator and adductor of the humerus and assists the latissimus dorsi in drawing the previously raised humerus downwards and backwards . It also helps stabilise the humeral head in the glenoid cavity. "The teres minor is a slim, narrow muscle within the rotator cuff, located in the shoulder. It is involved in the external rotation of the shoulder joint." By rolling on a therapy ball, it may help release some knots/adhesions and improve your #golfswing. Here's a link to the therapy balls that I use with my clients and myself: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01DJN1V48/ref=mp_s_a_1_4_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1517430548&sr=8-4&keywords=yoga+tune+up+therapy+balls&dpPl=1&dpID=21y2aSzWF2L&ref=plSrch
Also rollout the traps and Levator Scapulae (back of the neck)
It may help with the following swing characteristics #earlyextension #reversespineangle #lossofposture and a #flatshoulderplane ----------------------------
