The S3 supports upper extremity structures by distributing loads through the spine and trunk. It optimizes the position of the scapula to enhance the tone of the scapular stabilizing muscles. It simultaneously stretches the tight anterior structures to correct postural alignment and helps restore normal shoulder kinematics.
