Upper Trap/Levator Scapulae Release

Stand with your shoulder under a bar or with a lacrosse ball placed halfway between the neck and edge of the shoulder on the restricted side.

Upper Trap:

  • Move left and right until you find a tender area.
  • Next, shrug your shoulder up and down for 45 seconds or until the tension resolves.

Levator Scapula:

  • Look down and toward the armpit opposite the bar, then look back up.
  • Repeat for 45 seconds or until the tension resolves.
