Some people experience problems fully extending their arms when they try to complete simple, everyday tasks such as reaching for an item in a cabinet or pushing their arm through a shirt sleeve. Not being able to complete these daily tasks can become a major frustration.
Arm extension issues can be caused by knots in the side of the latissimus muscles, which are the two flat muscles located on either side of the back. Knots in the subscapularis muscles, which are found on the underside of the shoulder blade, also can limit the extension in your arms.
Luckily, massage is an easy and efficient way to get rid of those knots and restore the range of motion in the arm. If you know someone who is having trouble fully extending their arm, tell them you know somebody who can help! I would love to help them reach farther.
