Pain Between the Shoulder Blades – self-help

Do you wish you had a way to rub painful areas between your shoulder blades?  Maybe you try against a door frame.  Wish you could get at the top of your shoulders or the back of your neck.  This tool can let you reach the hard to reach places.

The Thera Cane Massager has been around for a long time.  I’m not sure how long, but I saw my first one 22 years ago.  I’ve see it spelled Thera cane or Ther-a-cane.

It’s basically for getting at knots and tender areas in the muscle.  It does come with a small illustrated booklet, but you can find videos on how to use it as well.

I explain elsewhere in the blog about the Pectoralis Minor muscle.  When tight, which they often are, they pull the shoulders forward, so the muscles between the shoulder blades (called rhomboids0 have to fight back making them work much harder than they have to.  So you want to address both areas.

Well see the video for a couple tips for the low back and neck.

If you go through my link I will get a small commission.  Thera Cane Massager
