Thoracic Extension Exercise – Brugger Stretch
Brugger Stretch – great for stretching out the pectoralis muscles and the flexor tendons in the arm. Also great for strengthening mid-back (thoracic muscles). Easy to perform at home or in the office – This exercise will help release tension from rounded shoulders and neck pain.
Floor Angels for thoracic extension
Try these Floor Angel stretches if your shoulders are rounded and your thoracic spine is more prominent than it should be.
Stretching your pectoralis major muscles and activating your rhomboids & trapezius muscles will allow your shoulder blades to move back towards the spine, rather than hanging out underneath your armpits.
This is a great relaxation exercise for anyone who spends too long on a computer or their mobile phone.
I received treatment from Richard for plantar fasciitis - he is professional, informative & very friendly. He also followed up my treatment with self help exercises. Thanks to Richard I'm now pain free!!
A fantastic and professional service which correctly diagnosed and treated my shoulder and neck discomfort. Richard also advised certain post treatment exercises to prevent the problem recurring.
Very professional, knowledgeable and thorough, I have been using Achilles Healers Sports Therapy to fix a sprained foot, and excellent results so far. I would highly recommend to anyone needing any niggles or injuries sorted!
Professional and cheery throughout both sessions, helped alot with my leg pain and would highly recommend him to anyone with the same problem
A very professional service, from online booking through to aftercare, Richard certainly knows his stuff. He is very thorough in assessing the whole body, not just your injury. His aftercare advice is also excellent. Highly recommended.
I went to Richard for shoulder and back pain and he worked wonders! Brilliant treatment and he also gave me some stretches to do at home which have been working well in between treatments, thank you!
I constantly struggle with neck and back pain and have been thrilled by the level of treatment I have received. Even when I go away, I have received information on how to self treat in between treatments.
