Use your EYE MUSCLES to clear headaches and neck pain.

Here is a wonderful technique that needs to be part of every therapists’ treatment regime. The deep upper Cervical muscles which include the Rectus Capitis Posterior Major and Minor and the Oblique Capitis Superior and Inferior, along with relevant attachments at the skull have a reciprocal inhibitory response with the large Optic muscle, By applying appropriate Muscle Energy Techniques of the eyes you can return normal tension of these extensors. This in turn takes the tension off the suboccipital ridge and returns the head to a less ‘poke’ position. Using the eye muscles to reciprocally release the deep neck extensors is a valuable tool for Upper Cross Syndrome, Torticollis, Chronic Wry Necks, Cervicogenic headaches, tension headaches and some imbalances with the TMJ. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdFatzpFsqeLjZY9NUnZ30Q-wIFf0GNmw
