How To Test Your Thoracic Spine Mobilty

How To Test Your Thoracic Spine Mobilty

How To Test Your Thoracic Spine Mobility for Women Over 40

How to test your thoracic spine mobility at home – for women over 40. Your thoracic spine mobility is important no matter what your age is.

Unfortunately, as we age we tighten up in the thoracic spine and lose some of our ability to rotate and extend – which can play havoc to the whole spine.

Test your mobility, see where you are at and then add these two exercises if you need to improve yours.
