Deltoid Mash for Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is something I pretty much see everyday! TRUE shoulder pain can stem from the rotator cuff due to poor mechanics. As a result, the rotator cuff works too hard and boom, now you have a rotator cuff injury.
In order to get to the deeper structures within the shoulder you often have to get through the deltoid muscle. This muscle is composed of front, back, and middle fibers and is essentially a flap of muscle the overlaps the entire shoulder. Learning how to release this muscle can allow you to gain access (easier access) to the rotator cuff injury. My advice, make sure you do this release first before you attempt other areas in the shoulder as it will loosen things up and make it much more effective.
