After watching the Daily RX for July 2 I started working with my peanut, and then the Gemini on my pec minor – I already know it is crazy tight/short. When I applied pressure with my fingers part of my hand/fingers went numb and partially swollen.
I have some constant tingling/numbness in my left hand which I’m pretty sure is caused by my tight pec minor on that side. (Might be tight bicep problem too) Looking at the anatomy at http://www.zygotebody.com/ it looks like the nerves run under the pec minor. You might be compressing the nerves. Try coming at it obliquely by laying on your side or leaning into a door jam with the Gemini.
I’ve a damaged neck (whiplash – mountain bike injury), and a jacked left shoulder complex – the pec minor involvement was just discovered. Every day I spend at least 15 minutes on scap/t-spine-lats and have done so for some time now and have seen some improvement. I do also have thoracic outlet syndrome which doesn’t help.
