Throughout our lives, we lose the most mobility in our thoracic spines. Even by the time we turn 16, we lose up to 27 degrees of sagittal mobility here.
This loss of mobility, and an increase in thoracic kyphosis decreases our ability to achieve full arm elevation, abducts the scapula, and increases the likelihood of shoulder impingement.

Offering your patients a few simple thoracic mobility exercises can have significant benefits on their overall mobility and function.
