June 2013 Newsletter

Hope you had a great May. We have 2 things for you in this month's newsletter.

  1. That torturous foam roller may be good for more than just your muscles. A recent study showed that foam rolling helps to decrease arterial stiffness and improves vascular endothelial function. In other words, it's good for your cardiovascular health too. For more information on foam rolling check out this months newsletter.
  2. If you spend your days sitting at a desk there is a good chance you have decreased thoracic spine mobility (stiff upper back). This can lead to postural compensations and decreased performance with rotational sports like tennis and golf. Try these 3 thoracic mobility exercises to prevent/resolve this problem.
