Rotator cuff self-myofascial release can be difficult, but if performed correctly pain relief can be instant. The small but powerful internal rotator,subscapularis,is often a cause of shoulder pain. When this rotator cuff muscle becomes tight it can inhibit action of the external rotators of the shoulder, which are responsible for mechanics like throwing or hitting. Additionally, a tight subscapularis does not allow the shoulder to fully externally rotate which can also decrease performance.

Locating the subscapularis can be difficult. It lies on the anterior border of the shoulder blade, between the shoulder blade and ribs and connects to the humerus or upper arm. Use the round tip of Therawheel and press into the arm pit until you feel the ribcage then move upward an in towards midline. If numbness in the fingers occurs, stop and reposition.
