Upper Trap/Levator Scap Release

Stand with your shoulder under a bar or with a lacrosse ball placed halfway between your neck and the 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 Scap:

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