Seated Thoracic Mobilization – Towel

  • HOW: Place a rolled up towel roll, shirts, or any other fabric. The goal is to make a โ€˜fulcrumโ€™ that we can use to mobilize your mid back similar to a foam roller. Place the object in your mid back and drive the upper half of your back โ€œoverโ€ the object while exhaling. Move the object to different areas of your mid back to mobilize multiple segments.
 
  • FEEL: You should feel moderate amounts of pressure in your mid back. If you feel a โ€œpopโ€, that is totally normal and okay.
 
  • COMPENSATION: Do not put the object on your lower back, just your upper back. Keep your core engaged and do not overly arch in your lower back.
