Thoracic Erectors

QUICK VIDEOS

By Part of Tool

WIDE

Commonly used in this area for long, broad strokes with light to moderate pressure.

NARROW

Well suited for focused work close to midline.

ROUNDED HEADPIECE

Used commonly for dynamic compression in this area. Static compression is less commonly used on the thoracic erectors.

Key Takeaways

  • Commonly overstretched in the office desk population.
  • Can be a problem due to decreased blood flow from chronic stretch
  • T Tool work should be aimed at improving blood flow, not stretching.

Precautions

Avoid pressing on the spinous processes or working too aggressively over the ribs on the lateral aspect of the ribcage.
