Our thoracic spine has a natural curve to it, called a kyphosis.  However, this kyphosis often becomes exaggerated as we age and can become very stiff.  This mid back stiffness can cause shoulder and neck pain, scapular pain, and can contribute to postural stress.

I have made a video of 2 great exercises to help with mid back pain and shoulder tightness with a foam roller, enjoy!
