Foam Rolling For Shoulder Impingement - How To Guide

Your shoulder is stuck and lacks rotation, you may even experience shoulder pain with movement. You likely have a shoulder impingement. How can you use a foam roller for your shoulder impingement? 
Follow these steps and check your results:
1) Self-Evaluate your shoulder impingement.
Lay down on the floor with your hands resting palms down at your sides. Place one hand across your chest and hold your rib cage. A healthy shoulder, without impingement, would allow a full 180-degree rotation without having to lift your ribs or arch your back. Begin to slowly lift your arm over-head until your ribs move or back begins to arch. That is your starting point. Take note of the angle.
3) Foam Rolling For Shoulder Impingement. Begin by placing the foam roller under your ribs, angle your arm at 45-degrees in-front of you. Roll down into the Rollga foam roller until you feel the angle of pressure reach the rotator cuff. Stop and hold pressure. Do not roll over the rotator cuff. repeat 2-3 times.
Next, stand up and use a wall to support the foam roller. The shoulder is delicate, we want to be able to manage and control the pressure. This is why we foam roll on the wall. Using the deeper contour. Rest the outside of your shoulder into the foam roller. Work your way around the shoulder while making little rocking motions. No need to over-due it. The Rollga protects the joint. The roll should feel relaxing. You should not experience any fire-like burning pains. If you do, consult with a physician before continuing. You will complete this step after 2-3 passes all the way around the shoulder joint.
Final step, place the round end of the Rollga Foam Roller into your Shoulder near the Pectoral Muscle. drape your shoulder over the Rollga ball and feel free to move in various planes of motion. (Sagittal, Transverse and/or Frontal Planes of Movement)
2) Shoulder impingement release #1 with 3D breathing exercise. This exercise was taught to me by Dr. Evan Osar in Chicago. He is the creator of the Integrated Movement Strategy. Place a foam roller or foam block near your ear. Rest your palm on top of the block or Rollga. take a deep breathe in, fill the space in your ribs under your fingers. Exhale and allow your ribcage to fall, at the same time lightly press pressure onto the Rollga foam roller. Relax your arm when you have fully exhaled. Repeat 3-4 times.
4) You are ready to check results after your foam rolling for shoulder impingement exercises. Lay back on the floor and repeat step one and evaluate your range of motion. You will feel a noticeable difference in range of motion.
