💢WHY YOU MIGHT BE GETTING HEADACHES AT WORK
.
Lots of Headaches happen mid-week from the grind of work 🙇 or if you may be still recovering from sleeping all weekend.
.
This post covers the ‘Suboccipital Muscles’ aka The muscles at the base of your skull. Which are BIG💥 headache generators. In fact they’ve found about 2/3 of people with chronic neck pain have trigger points in this area.
.
They get tense due to hyper-extension 🔄 of the base of your skull. This includes activities like:
.
🖥Working at a screen all day
🚗That brutal drive to work
📺Watching TV while lying on your stomach .
.
There are 4 main Muscles:
1️⃣/2️⃣ Rectus Capitis Major and Minor ⛓Attaches from C1-C2 Vertebra to Base of Skull
.
3️⃣Superior Oblique ⛓Attaches from outside of C1 to Base of Skull
.
4️⃣Inferior Oblique ⛓Attaches from Spinous process of C2 to outside of C1
.
The way these muscles attach, forms this 📐Triangle of discomfort. We’ll show you some stretches over the next couple of weeks.
