Slumped shoulders coexist with rounded upper back and a foreword head posture. This condition is common with those who work with their arms directly in front of them or sit for prolong periods in poor posture.

Slumped shoulders lead to shoulder pathologies as well as upper thoracic spine dysfunctions.

Pain is most often reported in the rhomboids and middle traps (upper thoracic region) due to muscular fatigue and/or myofascial trigger points. The (pectoralis major) upper chest muscles will become hypertonic (tight) and tender. Limitation in lateral rotation of the shoulder may be effected due to the pectoralis major muscles being tight as well as restriction to active retraction of the scapulae.

Deep tissue massage, focusing on the hypertonic muscles and fascia elongation is also helpful to encourage lengthening and loosening of tissues. While deep tissue and myofascial release will decrease pain and increase mobility, long lasting results will be based on compliance off the table to make life long postural changes.
