#17 – Razzle Dazzle Lower Trapezius Transfer

Forget The Lat Transfer! Time To Show You The Lower Trapezius Transfer, Razzle Dazzle
That snappy lecture title belongs to a talk delivered by today’s guest Dr Dan Guttmann of the Taos Orthopedic Institute in New Mexico. Dr Guttmann was trying to find a quiet place to send some emails when he happened upon our mobile podcast studio. They say timing is everything, so we took the opportunity to quiz Dr Guttmann about this tricky technique. Thanks for being a good sport Dr Guttmann, see you in Taos.
