A muscle that has a long to do list and required to multitask, especially under load.
The Lats are responsible for control and movement of: +Shoulder +Thoracic Spine
- Lumbar Spine
- SI Joint
How many things can you do at once and for how long?
Latissimus Dorsi is frequently released due to tightness, causing compensations and postural changes resulting in injury.
But do you think it must always be released if it has so much to do.
At Greater Western Health we commonly find Lats to be inhibited and weak due to the long list of tasks it is required to perform.
If you have pain in the Neck, Shoulder, Elbow, Mid-Lower Back, Pelvis, SIJ, Hip, YOU may have a dysfunctional Lat.
Only one way to find out. Assess and don’t just guess.
