I am interfacing with my client’s chiropractor on her corrective exercises for upper crossed syndrome and an elevated right shoulder. He asked me to do everything possible to help lift her left shoulder and lower her right shoulder. I am having her do SMFR on both sides for her Sternocleidomastoid w/finger pressure, Levator Scapula and Upper Traps w/Thera Cane and stretching the same which are correctives for upper crossed and elevated shoulders. I have her doing cervical retraction exercises as well. But what single sided things should I have her doing? I’ve searched my NASM CES text and have not been able to find corrective exercises for lowering clients single sided shoulder asymmetry.
Personally I would not be doing manipulation, I feel it’s out of my scope of practice. but It sounds like you really trust this Chiropractor, maybe he can show you what he wants you to do?
I would suggest having this client see a Physical Therapist, or work with a Licensed Massage/deep tissue worker.
