Hello, If anyone has any recommendations for a type of exercise to improve my flexibility I would be very grateful.
I do ballet, and have done forever. But I have a recurring shoulder/rib muscle injury due to a chest issue & when I went to the osteopath she was (again) amazed at how stiff I am everywhere/how tense my muscles are and said 'your normal isn't normal'.
I'm just not sure what to do to improve and help myself not hurt so much. Thanks for any help you can give.
With rib problems, you might be better off with Pilates. It focuses on strengthening your core and keeping you aligned, but will also increase your flexibility over time.
If you can find a sports therapist for a good massage that will also help, especially in conjunction with osteopathic - you need your muscles to support your bones in the right position, clicking them back without that can just mean they pop out again too easily
