    Upper back mobility seems to be the biggest thing with it. When it's tight, it changes the shoulder girdle and forces you into internal rotation. Any adhesions/calcium in the area?

    Makes sense, since both shoulders are protracted. Adhesions yes, which he worked on today and will again next week. Crap built up all over the place.

    Once that's worked out, you should be good. Most only work out the adhesions in the upper trap portion, but a lot builds up along the medial edge of the scapula as well. Those really need to be worked out as they limit retraction and/or force you into protraction.

    Alright sweet, man. Thanks. The upper trap was pretty disguisting though he pretty much scraped every square inch of my upper back so hopefully a couple sessions will do the job. I might do your butterknife trick myself on my bi's/tri's/delt once my skin heals up enough, just for a second weekly session.

    I'll continue finding some TSpine exercises that make it feel good.

    I've found that even short bouts (<5 mins) of scrapping the area is beneficial. Hell, do it during commercials while watching tv.

    What do you use for lubricant? This mofo used something 10x the strength of Blue Heat. Sucked. Or do you just man up and scrape dry skin?

    I think I'll have to wait a couple days to do any more. I look like I was beat with a club.

    Cap roll on followed by Lubriderm.

    Spit works in a pinch. Wait...what?

  8. How do you guys go about this knife scrapping? Any pointers, tips?

    Also, I got some serious adhesions right at the edge of my left scapula, which is also the problem arm. Could be the culprit.

    Throw some **** on, bite the pillow, and have your wife scrape around it. You'll feel the bumps. Once skin looks like it'll break, stop.

    Rodja may have a more technical way..

    It applies to both. You have no idea how many times the phrase, "Jam it in there!" is uttered while putting on the gear.

  15. This gratson technique sounds diabolical. I'm going to look more into it. My right IT band and piriformis have been requiring constant maintenance... and every day when I wake up, my low back is tight as heck (I'm assuming this a piriformis issue)

  16. Give it a whirl, man. Or even some ART would benefit.

    Yeah. Jim downloaded one that works on his lame-not-an-iPhone, that's not available for Apple yet. Plus, I forgot the name of it... (Jim what is it?)

    Anyways, I downloaded this one. It needs a login and the website is being slow....so I doubt it's free. Oh well
