The SMR Levator Scapulae Theracane exercise helps relieve tension in the upper back and neck area.
- From a standing position, place the end point of the theracane on the right levator scapulae muscle (located above the shoulder blade to the base of the skull).
- Slowly allow the left ear to drop towards the left shoulder and let the chin drop towards the chest until a stretch is felt on the right side of the upper back/neck.
- Hold for 30-90 seconds depending on intensity of application.
- Repeat on the opposite side.
