Video: Upper back rehab

An injury that can occur from low bar squatting is upper back tightness. The scapula can pinch between the 9th rib. That knot makes it almost impossible to bear weight during the squat again. I've combined several techniques i've learned and have been using to overcome my injury extremely fast. If you don't have a lacrosse ball or pressure ball here's how to make one. Remember this is going to hurt and feel tight for a while. Eventually you going to have a release and the muscle will relax. Don't be alarmed if your back pops either. Enjoy and SQUAT.
