Compression of Brachial Plexus

The majority of nerve and blood vessels run into the shoulder by way of a little highway known as the brachial plexus, which bundles them all into a tight rope that runs from your neck, under your collar-bone and down the front of your arm.

The combination of external rotation and abduction of the humerus, scapular retraction and depression, and compressive force from the weight and the contracting muscles around the plexus can cause some serious potential injury to the area. If you’ve ever felt your fingers go numb from holding a bar across your shoulders to do squats or lunges, then you probably have some compression of your brachial plexus and could benefit from stretching out your pecs and anterior shoulder.
