Did you know?

Fun body fact: Everyone is familiar with the strong chest muscle the Pectoralis Major (pec major), but did you know that you have a Pectoralis Minor (pec minor)? Its primary job is to help elevate your ribs when you inhale. The major vessels and nerves for your arm also run under the pec minor. Apical (shallow) breathing and tight chest muscles can affect the movement, strength and sensations in the ribcage and arms like hands/ arms ‘falling asleep’, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms etc.
