Stress and Tension in the Neck
Strengthen neck muscles (nape of the neck) to help relieve headaches, migraines and jaw pain.
As a result of the head being in forward flexion being sat at a computer all day or as a result of rounded shoulders, the occiput muscles at the back of the neck weaken and shorten. Further more the Levator Scapula muscles which attaches from the shoulder blade onto C2 disc just below the skull lengthens and this causes severe headaches and other stresses and strains on the surrounding joints and muscles.
