Dry cupping + active fascial release treatment with my client @LuRendy as an additional approach to my osteopathic techniques.
.
A painful but very effective tool!
.
For dry cupping you usually use plastic or glass cups which are adjusted to the skin with the help of a vacuum pump. The cups should stay for 15-20 minutes.
I am applying a vacuum pump that is used in the gynecology called KIWI - its a vacuum pump designed to provide assistance in childbirth. The advantage of using this device is that it has more suction power as the regular cups and therefore it allows to better fix and lift the fascial layers. Additionally, the athlete can simultaneously make active movements which lead to dissolving of adhesions of the fascial layers and provide a better flexibility in the connective tissue, joints and musculature.
This is a really good treatment device that can be recommended for every therapist!

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE OF THE LONGUS COLLI/CAPITIS MUSCLE
.
The longus colli gets its name for the Latin for long muscle of the neck. The muscle acts as a flexor of the head and neck when its acts bilaterally, and causes rotation to the ipsilateral side when it acts unilaterally. The longus colli consists of three sections: a superior oblique, an inferior oblique and a vertical. The arterial supply to the muscle comes from the muscular branches of the ascending cervical artery. The innervation to the muscle comes from the anterior rami of the 2nd to 6th cervical spinal nerves.
.
Despite its importance, the longus colli isn’t well known or appreciated ☹️which is very unfortunate, as in my experience it is a very important 🗝muscle to have always in focus, especially if your patient is suffering from cervical spine problems!
.
Once you understand its position and actions, it is not surprising that the longus colli can be a source of neck pain. Not only because it is sore or hurt, but because when it gets too tight it can force a cervical spine kyphosis or straight neck (Military Neck). This happens very often after suffering from a whiplash injury.
.
The longus colli muscle trigger points can lead to referred pain in the neck and ear as you can see on the red marked zones in the picture. Additionally, it can cause tinnitus, a sore throat, painful speech, thyroid gland disturbance and functional disturbance of the heart.
.
On the picture you can see how i approach the longus colli muscle for a myofascial trigger point treatment. Make sure you hold the pressure as long as the patient tells you the pain or the radiation goes down or the pain is not radiating anymore but at least for 1 minute and finish the technique then with a Ponçage. I usually hold the pressure until i feel a myofascial release under my finger!

MUSCLES WHICH CAN INITIATE NECK PAIN AND HEADACHES SERIES - OCCIPITAL MUSCLE SELF-RELEASE EXERCISE
.
As a follow up to my previous post about the occipital muscle and myofascial treatment I wanted to show how you can self-release this muscles.
.
The suboccipital muscles are a group of muscles that are located below the occipital bone (base of the skull). These muscles attach at different angles and are responsible for subtle movements of the head and upper neck.
.
These muscles tend to get overly tight and develop a lot of extra tension. They are put in a shortened position a lot with positions like forward head posture, looking at screens etc.
.
This muscle tissue is a massive culprit for headaches, and extra tension here often refers into the base of the skull and elsewhere in the head.
.
Relieving tension here can be done using a @BLACKROLL® BALL, Lacrosse ball or 🎾 technique as shown in the video. 1-2 minutes will usually do the trick, focusing on each side separately.
.
If people targeted this area with myofascial release more, there would be way less medication use and chronic headaches. Releasing some of this tissue can directly affect and relieve your headache without the use of any medicine!
.
The root cause must also be addressed, as this technique is more of a 'quick fix' to reduce or get rid of the headache symptoms.
.
❗️If you suffer from headaches, or directly after any muscle release via fascial soft tissue work, it is very important to stay well hydrated. Pure water (@VossWorld) or Coconut water are the best options❗️

MUSCLES WHICH CAN INITIATE NECK PAIN AND HEADACHES SERIES - OCCIPITAL MUSCLES
.
There are 4 muscles involved in the suboccipital region also called 'Upper Cervical Spine' . . . . . 1️⃣Rectus capitis post. major
2️⃣Rectus capitis post. minor
3️⃣Obliquus capitis superior
4️⃣Obliquus capitis inferior
.
These muscles are deeper than all other muscles in the back of the neck and they are very strongly connected to our eyes to give the feedback to the larger neck muscles as to where the head is positioned! The purpose of these muscles is to provide fine motor function in movements of the head.
.
The actions of trapezius, sternocleidomastoid and other larger muscles that move the head are refined by the relatively small suboccipital muscles. As the neck starts to flex in the lower cervical, our eyes 👀always want to look forward, the head and upper cervical spine starts to extend, the suboccipitals shorten and hold the back of the skull to the top two vertebrae (Atlas and Axis) and lock it in place.
.
As I described already in my previous post, these muscles are also a common area to develop trigger points that can cause terrible headaches as you can see on the red marked zones in the picture. Approximately 50% of the neck rotation should come from the first two vertebrae. The rest of the cervical spine splits the other 50%, gradually rotating less and less as you progress from C3 to C7.
.
The suboccipital area is very prone to get stiff and immobile, when the upper cervical spine can't rotate properly, that motion get picked up by the lower cervical spine, which we want to be actually more stable!
.
On the picture you can see a myofascial release technique for the suboccipital muscles as well as a mobilization technique for the upper cervical spine to flexion.
.
Releasing some of this tissue can directly affect and relieve your headache without the use of any medicine!

MUSCLES WHICH CAN INITIATE NECK PAIN AND HEADACHES SERIES: TEMPORALIS MUSCLE
.
The temporalis muscle originates at the temporal bone and inserts at the coronoid process of the mandible, it is a fan shaped muscle on each side of the skull. It is a major muscle involved in moving the temporomandibular joint (Jaw joint muscle). Excess tension here can be a big cause of headaches. This muscle works a lot and gets brutally tight over time. Clenching the teeth due to things like stress and anxiety will greatly increase this tension.
.
The temporalis muscle trigger points can lead to headache and toothache as well. The temporalis muscle is connected ⛓to the suboccipital muscles and shoulder muscles. Trigger points in the temporalis can initiate trigger points in the suboccipital muscles and shoulder region (esp. in the trapezius muscle). That means whenever you treat the temporalis you always ☝have to focus on the cervical spine and shoulder region as well‼️
.
On the picture you can see several myofascial release techniques for the temporalis muscle.
.
❗️If you suffer from headaches, or directly after any muscle release via fascial soft tissue work, it is very important to stay well hydrated. Pure water (@VossWorld) or Coconut water are the best options❗️
.
P.S.: If you have any dentist treatment, you should always have checked all the Jaw joint muscles after, as it can lead to exactly those problems mentioned above. Usually they won't appear right on the next day after, as the human body is very good at compensating, but they can appear anytime later on. Each single dental treatment is a kind of a micro-trauma, and if the body can no longer compensate them, it will come to ⚡️.

MUSCLES WHICH CAN INITIATE NECK PAIN AND HEADACHES SERIES: MASSETER MUSCLE
.
The masseter muscle (originates at the zygomatic bone and inserts at the mandible) is the strongest muscle in the human body and can harbour some of the most common trigger points. It is a major muscle involved in moving the temporomandibular joint (Jaw joint muscle). Excess tension here can be a big cause of headaches. This muscle works a lot and gets brutally tight over time. Clenching the teeth due to things like stress and anxiety will greatly increase this tension.
.
The masseter muscle trigger points can lead to referred pain ⚡in the head as you can see on the red marked zones in the picture. The masseter muscle can force headache, toothache, tinnitus, bruxism, jaw clenching or TMJ syndrome and is connected ⛓to the suboccipital muscles + shoulder muscles. Trigger points in the masseter can initiate trigger points in the suboccipital muscles and shoulder region (esp. in the trapezius muscle). That means whenever you treat the masseter you always ☝have to focus on the cervical spine and shoulder region as well‼️
.
On the picture you can see several myofascial release techniques for the masseter muscle.

MUSCLES WHICH CAN INITIATE NECK PAIN AND HEADACHES SERIES - STERNOCLEIDOMASTOID MUSCLE
.
The sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM) is a paired muscle in the superficial layers of the side of the neck. It is one of the largest and most superficial cervical muscles. The primary actions of the muscle are rotation of the head to the opposite side and flexion of the neck. The muscle tends to be overactive in many people we see. It is commonly recruited to help stabilise the neck/head when we adopt poor postures and positions (forward head posture). It is also an accessory muscle to breathing along with the scalenes, so having poor breathing patterns and habits will cause this muscle to overwork all day long and develop too much tension and trigger points.
.
The SCM trigger points can cause a variety of symptoms including headache and face pain, balance problems, visual disturbances, ear and sinus symptoms, and more body wide symptoms. They also can initiate trigger points in the jaw joint muscles. Additionally, the muscle can cause biomechanical problems in the cervical spine. It is the only muscle that creates such wide spread problems!
.
The SCM is innervated by the accessory nerve (Cranial nerve XI) which is content of the jugular foramen (a foramen in the base of the skull), where the accessory nerve can get compressed or entrapped. If so, it can lead to hypertension in the SCM. That's why it is very important to treat (release) this foramen to give the nerve enough space to work properly.
.
On the picture you can see several myofascial release techniques for the sternocleidomastoid muscle incl. the Jugular foramen release.
.
❗️If you suffer from headaches, or directly after any muscle release via fascial soft tissue work, it is very important to stay well hydrated. Pure water (@VossWorld) or Coconut water are the best options❗️

MUSCLES WHICH CAN INITIATE NECK PAIN AND HEADACHES SERIES - OSTEOPATHIC DISTRACTION MANIPULATION (CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT) OF THE CERVICO-THORACIC-JUNCTION HVLA
.
The C7-T1 spinal segment, also referred to as the cervico-thoracic-junction (CT Junction), is located at the very bottom of the neck.
More specifically, this is where the neck (cervical spine) connects with the upper back (thoracic spine).
.
Referring to my previous posts the trap muscle can force a CT Junction subluxation which requires a distraction ⬅️➡️ mobilization. First of all you should make sure to have released 🔨all myofascial structures which cause a CT Junction subluxation (Trap muscle, Rhomboids, Serratus posterior superior, Erector spinae and Intrinsic back muscles).
.
Usually if you do a proper myofascial release treatment the CT Junction will correct itself but sometimes it can still stay subluxated. If so, it requires a high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) thrust💥technique to get the joint to the right position ⚖️otherwise it can force thoracic, cervical or shoulder problems and even headaches through an so-called ascending kinematic chain⛓.
.
The patient is seated, almost the same hight then the therapist. The patient places his hands behind the neck and then the therapist wheels through the space in front of the shoulders and applies a distraction force!
.

MUSCLES WHICH CAN INITIATE NECK PAIN AND HEADACHES SERIES: TRAPEZIUS MUSCLE SELF-RELEASE EXERCISE
.
As a follow up to my previous post about the trap muscle and myofascial treatment I wanted to show how you can self-release the trap! This muscle has 3 functional parts:
.
▪️Descending (or superior) part: runs from the occipital bone and nuchal ligament to the lateral third of the clavicle.
▪️Transverse (or middle) part: originates from the spinal processes of the first to fourth thoracic vertebrae and inserts at the acromion. . ▪️Ascending (or inferior) part: extends from the spinal processes of the fifth to twelfth thoracic vertebrae to the scapular spine.
.
Take a @BLACKROLL® BALL, Lacrosse ball, ⚾️ or 🎾. Place it on the muscle and try the release exercises which you can see in the picture:
1️⃣Ascending and transverse part
2️⃣Descending part
.
Roll slowly among the muscle, trying to identify areas of tightness or discomfort. Pause on these areas for several seconds and the tightness should begin to ease. Ensuring you roll from the origin to the insertion is a good way to target 🎯the entire length of the muscle.
.
Releasing some of this tissue can directly affect and relieve your headache without the use of any medicine!
