I was reading through Kiona's Korner about lifting ribs, and decided to focus on that during my MORE w/o today.
For several months now, I've been plagued with this obnoxious little shoulder injury. Seems like the head of my humerus is rotated forward, and the top of my anterior deltoid goes >PING< whenever I reach around behind me, and sometimes other parts will do it more or less at random.
I've been very gently doing just a couple of the arm moves in plie', but today, I focused on lifting my ribs throughout, and I noticed much less pain, and very little >PING<. Just a few twinges. Yay!
In general, the T-Tapp way of engaging my shoulder girdle and lats will tend to pull the humerus back where it belongs. I suppose the fact that all of this takes some extra effort might have something to do with my having the shoulder injury in the first place, eh?
