In today’s muscle of the day we have the subboccipital muscles, which are known as the rectus capitis posterior major and minor.
These muscles are a really big deal in overall neck function and really get beat up with our bad postures and never-ending checking of our phones.
They get loaded up with adhesion big time!
Adhesion in these muscles can cause some major problems:
Just overall stiffness.
Why do these muscles get so much adhesion?
Because we spend the majority or our lives sitting and looking down!
This really beats these muscles up and cause so much neck dysfunction.
When these muscles have adhesion it causes the lower part of the neck and muscles down there to have to over work to make up the lack of stability.
This leads to that never-ending tight spot or know in your upper trap that you jam on with a lacrosse ball or have your massage therapist try to destroy.
Only to have it come back a few days later!
The problem is the muscles up top, when they don't work it causes a trickle down effect into the neck and everything else just gets beat up.
In really bad situations adhesion in these muscles can also trigger migraines and trust me if you suffer from them they are no joke.
So if you have headaches, neck tension or never-ending stiffness in the neck it might be time to get these muscles checked and fixed by an expert!
Adhesion is a big deal and luckily is reversible with expert diagnosis and treatment with doctors trained in the Integrative Diagnosis System.
