The infraspinatus is a small muscle located in the shoulder blade area that is responsible for external rotation and stabilization of the shoulder joint. Tightness or discomfort in this muscle can occur due to repetitive activities or overuse, leading to limited shoulder mobility and pain. Infraspinatus release is a technique used to alleviate tension and improve mobility in this muscle.
The technique involves applying deep pressure and massage to the muscle to release any adhesions or trigger points. This can be done by a massage therapist or with the use of a foam roller. By performing infraspinatus release, you can improve shoulder mobility and reduce the risk of injury.
