The Rectus Capitis Posteriors

 

The rectus capitis muscles are often implicated as causing suboccipital headaches, Silvrback blog image

but, as you can see, the trigger point referral pattern is over the ear or in a "sunglass" pattern, as we often teach in our dry needling seminars.

The Tib Posterior

 Posterior tibialis tendinitis is a primary soft tissue tendinopathy of the posterior tibialis that leads to altered foot biomechanics. Although the natural history of posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction is not fully known, it has mostly been agreed that it is a progressive disorder.(1)

The latissimus

 

The latissimus dorsi is THE functional link between the upper and lower extremity, particularly though its connections with the thoracolumbar fascia (1, 2). Affording itself a large attachment centrally from the T7 to L5 spinouses, laterally to the iliac crest and thoracolumbar fascia, rostrally to the lower 3 or 4 ribs and . . .

Return to the Suboccipitals

The Myodural Bridge Guest writer: Mitch Peritz DC

Once again, we are happy to have Dr Peritz write an excellent follow up to his last article (in case you missed it, click here). 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.

The Tibialis Posterior. Did you know...

Lets take another look at the tibialis posterior

As clinicians , we often needle and treat the tibialis posterior for posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, platar fasicits, patellofemoral joint pain, and a host of other conditions. Lets take a look at some of the anatomy and see why it is a big player in these conditions.

Precision

The importance of anatomical localization: The Scalenes

When needling, whether it be dry kneeling or acupuncture, precision is key (1, 2). It is often said that "if you don't know where your needle is, you probably shouldn't be there". This is very true and in areas like the apex of the lung field, especially prudent.

The Suboccipitals and Greater Occipital Nerve

 

I began this piece a while ago as part of a needling atlas that I was going to co author with one of my mentors, Dr Martha Lucas. The project proved to be more of a task than either of us realized, but some great information came out of it and I am passing some of that along to you here. This is a lengthy post, as the . . .
