At Rider Chiropractic Sports and Injury, we often use multiple techniques to decrease the pain and change the biomechanics of your spine.
- Dry Needling the suboccipital muscles
- ART protolcols on the postieror neck and anterior chest muscles.
- Chiropractic Manipulation/Adjustment
- Exercises to strengthen the anterior neck and back muscles
If you are currently suffering from headaches of this nature/condition, come get evaluated and back to enjoying your daily activities.
The most common headaches result from anterior head carriage. This is a diagnosis of chronically tight and activated deep suboccipital muscles on the back of the neck. This often results in further muscular imbalances, such as Upper Crossed Syndrome.
A chain effect then carries down the spine, causing:
- Weak deep neck flexors
- Tight pecs and anterior shoulders
- Weak upper and mid back muscles
This results in the hump-like appearance chronically seen in students or office workers who spend lots of time seated in front of a desk/computer.
