As an example, the two pictures on this page shows a partner stretch targeting the muscle pectoralis minor.
The muscle contracts and protracts the scapula ( shoulder blade ) forward when the muscle has normal free range of movement, it also aids in respiration ( our breathing ) when the shoulders have the freedom of movement and good posture able to be held.
In our modern society of leaning forward looking at computer screens for hours, this restricts this muscles ability to move back freely and allow our shoulders to be correctly positioned and in turn this can affect your ability to breath well.
The second picture shows an anatomical view of the actual muscle ( pectoralis minor ) its origination connection is from the ribs 3,4 and 5 and inserting / connecting to the scapula ( shoulder blade ) .
When you look at the partner stretch picture you can now visualize how this sample of stretch therapy will assist you to Stretch this muscle that then aids to open the chest and restore better breathing.
