A Thoracic Wedge is a useful tool for patients to help ease the stiffness between the shoulder blades. In particular, for those who are lacking thoracic extension.
Sometimes you can lose the ability to move through your thorax and ribs. This can occur from bad habits such as; general poor posture as well as from too much sitting.
Some sports such as swimming and gymnastics require a good maintenance of thoracic extension range. Another sport example requiring good thoracic extension can be certain positions on the Rugby field such as the Hooker.
You can purchase a Thoracic wedge over the counter, as well as after a treatment with one of our Physiotherapists Paddington.
