Levator Scapula Tightness: 2 Tools To Use In Practice

Levator Scapula Tightness: 2 Tools To Use In Practice

Mechanical neck pain is the second most common presentation in chiropractic offices worldwide. (1) Tightness in the levator scapula is a predictable finding in the majority of those cases. A new randomized clinical trial examined the efficacy of two proven therapies and concluded:

“Application of both kinesiology tape and postural control exercise combined can significantly reduce neck pain and normalize levator scapula activities in patients with mechanical neck dysfunction more than the application of either intervention.” (2)

Want to see that in action? We’ve got you covered. While we couldn’t track down a demonstration from the authors, we did find a widely-recognized expert on these two techniques.

Check out this week’s Vlog to watch Dr. Todd Riddle, director of education for FAKTR and SE Sports seminars, demonstrate his practical application of cervical taping and exercise.
