The next time you have a patient with an upper cervical problem, refer back to this article and think of all the far reaching implications of this often overlooked group.

How's your Iliacus?

Have you thought about the importance of the iliacus? During gait? How about at initial contact and again at pre swing? (1) You realize it will be “turned off” if you have labral pathology, right? (2) Needling can be one way of “turning it back on”.(3)

E Stim and Needling

While flying over the snow capped mountains of Montana, on my way home from teaching a level 1 dry needling course in Vancouver, BC , I saw lots of folks siting, neck flexed forward in a kyphotic posture, watching movies on their iphones and ipads, or playing a game.
