This video describes how I treat Sub Occipital Tension using Dry Needling & a complimentary Manual Therapy technique.
How to safely apply dry needling for patients with sub-occipital neck tension and follow up with a great manual therapy technique to get great results for your patients every time.
These Dry Needling Techniques should only be applied by trained therapists who have completed an accredited course.
Okay, what are we going to do with somebody with upper trap tension.But lingering it lingers on and it doesn’t actually cause you pain around the shoulders but further up into the skull.
I’ll show you what we do so we needle into the upper traps, which we all know how to do, very straightforward.
We’re okay getting some great twitches in there. But of course you can do your level 1 to 5 to that area too. But what else can we do now to help somebody with some lingering pain which they will have around the sub-occipital area right here.
Of course the upper traps come in to here and insert into the superior nuchal line, which is the top of the ears.
That’s going to be really tender right up into here. So they’ve still got problems down here. Don’t keep working down here have a look at the superior nuchal line, right here, always tender just around the same spot as another muscle occipitalis. So do some soft tissue in here and of course do some dry needling to this area as well to occipitalis and that’s going to help. As well to help with sub occipital tension headaches and shoulder problems as well .
Hope that helps .
