Pectoralis Major Treatment with Muscle Energy Techniques
Pectoralis Major Muscle
The two muscle heads meet to form a large muscle that ends at the top part of the Humerus, the bone of the upper arm. The Pectoralis Major muscle has different ways in which it affects movements. The muscle helps with raising of the arm, inward rotation of the arm and bringing the arm back to its natural position. When heavy breathing is involved then the Pectoralis Major will help as well with lifting of the ribcage.
Due to the muscle being heavily used in a variety of sports and exercises it could be easily injured. The most common injury happens from overuse of the muscle which could lead to inflammation and tears. Injuring the Pectoralis Major does not mean that the pain will necessarily be felt in the chest. Pain rising from the shoulder while trying to lift the arm or push an object away from the body could also mean that the Pectoralis Major is the issue.
