This blog about the psoas illustrates its importance in movement. It highlights its local and global relationships. In NKT we often look to centrally located muscles when there are multiple dysfunctions.
MYOFASCIAL TREATMENT OF THE TEMPORALIS MUSCLE
NECK PAIN OR HEADACHES?
MYOFASCIAL TREATMENT OF THE MASSETER MUSCLE
The masseter muscle originates at the zygomatic bone, inserts at the mandible, is the strongest muscle in the human body and can harbour some of the most common trigger points. It is a major muscle involved in moving the temporomandibular joint (TMJ = Jaw joint). Excess tension here can be a big cause of headaches. This muscle works a lot and gets brutally tight over time. Clenching the teeth due to things like stress and anxiety will greatly increase this tension.
The masseter muscle trigger points can lead to referred pain in the head as you can see on the red marked zones in the picture. The masseter muscle can force headaches, toothache, tinnitus, bruxism, jaw clenching or TMJ syndrome and is connected to the suboccipital muscles + shoulder muscles. Trigger points in the masseter can initiate trigger points in the suboccipital muscles and shoulder region (esp. in the trapezius muscle). That means whenever you treat the masseter you always have to focus on the cervical spine and shoulder region as well!
If you suffer from headaches, or directly after any muscle release via fascial soft tissue work, it is very important to stay well hydrated. Pure water or Coconut water are the best options!
P.S.: After any dentist treatment, you should always have checked all the Jaw joint muscles, as it can lead to exactly those problems mentioned above. Usually they won't appear right on the next day after, as the human body is very good at compensating, but they can appear anytime later on. Each single dental treatment is a kind of a micro-trauma, and if the body can no longer compensate them, it will come to pain situations!

NECK PAIN OR HEADACHES?
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE OF THE TRAPEZIUS MUSCLE
The trap muscle is one of the largest superficial muscles that extend longitudinally from the occipital bone to the lower thoracic vertebrae and laterally to the spine of the scapula. Its functions are to move the scapulae and support the arm.
The trap has three functional regions: the superior region (descending part), which supports the weight of the arm; the intermediate region (transverse part), which retracts the scapulae; and the inferior region (ascending part), which medially rotates and depresses the scapulae.
Contraction of the trap can have two effects: movement of the scapulae when the spinal origins are stable, and movement of the spine when the scapulae are stable. Its main function is to stabilize and move the scapula.
This muscle tends to develop too much tension for postural reasons, such as forward head posture (where it has to work overtime to stabilise the head and neck due to poor alignment). Other reasons include poor breathing patterns (shallow neck breathing all day), and muscle imbalances elsewhere.
Trap muscle trigger points can lead to referred pain in the shoulder, neck and head as you can see on the red marked zones in the picture. They also can initiate trigger points in the jaw joint muscles. Additionally, the muscle can cause biomechanical problems in the cervical and thoracic spine.
The trap is innervated by the accessory nerve (Cranial nerve XI) which is content of the jugular foramen, where the accessory nerve can get compressed or entrapped. If so, it can lead to hypertension in the trapezius. That's why it is very important to treat (release) this foramen to give the nerve enough space to work properly.
The pictures show several myofascial treatment techniques for the trap muscle incl. the Jugular foramen release.

My client bought a Peloton to exercise during the pandemic. She thought she had followed the directions correctly in setting it up, but when she used it her left knee, lower back, and shoulder all hurt afterwards. Sounded like a kinetic chain, so I looked in the center for dysfunction. NKT testing found the medial head of the gastrocnemius overworking and the medial fibers of the rectus femoris underworking. Released the gastroc and activated the rec fem. The knee felt better.
Then we found the quadratus lumborum overworking and the medial rec fem underworking. She was hiking her hip to power her leg. Released the QL and activated the rec fem.
Finally we found her elevating her left shoulder as well. Released the upper trap and activated the rec fem.
Someone from Peloton is coming to adjust her bike. Exercise in the time of the plague.
NECK PAIN OR HEADACHES?
SUBOCCIPITAL MUSCLES AND OAA-COMPLEX - PART 1
[ANATOMY & FUNCTION]
There are 4 muscles involved in the suboccipital region also called 'Upper Cervical Spine' or OAA-Complex:
1️⃣Rectus capitis posterior major (axis to head)
2️⃣Rectus capitis posterior minor (atlas to occiput)
3️⃣Obliquus capitis superior (atlas to head)
4️⃣Obliquus capitis inferior (axis to atlas)
These muscles are deeper than all other muscles in the back of the neck and they are very strongly connected to our eyes to give the feedback to the larger neck muscles as to where the head is positioned!
The purpose of these muscles is to provide fine motor function in movements of the head. Beyond their ability to concentrically contract and move their attachments, isometrically contract and stabilize their attachments, they have a heavy concentration of proprioceptors, and are therefore important toward balance and equilibrium of the head. The actions of trapezius, sternocleidomastoid and other larger muscles that move the head are refined by the relatively small suboccipital muscles.
As the neck starts to flex in the lower cervical, our eyes always want to look forward, the head and upper cervical spine starts to extend, the suboccipitals shorten and hold the back of the skull to the top two vertebrae (Atlas and Axis) and lock it in place. These muscles are also a common area to develop trigger points that can cause terrible headaches.
Approximately 50% of the neck rotation should come from the first two vertebrae. The rest of the cervical spine splits the other 50%, gradually rotating less and less as you progress from C3 to C7.
The suboccipital area is very prone to get stiff and immobile, when the upper cervical spine can't rotate properly, that motion get picked up by the lower cervical spine, which we want to be actually more stable!
Releasing some of this tissue can directly affect and relieve your headache without the use of any medicine!

New client, a runner, has bilateral knee pain. The Single Leg Stance test showed bilateral overpronation. He told me he used to wear orthotics for years. NKT testing found the peroneus longus near the tib-fib point, and the adductor magnus near the adductor tubercle overworking and the gluteus medius underworking on both sides. Released the peroneus and adductor then activated the glute med one side at a time. Knee pain much better and so was his balance.
New client, a runner, presents with left knee and lower leg pain. There were so many tight and painful muscles that I asked about any scars and surgeries. He told me he has his appendix removed 4-5 years ago. So I decided to test his abs and psoas. NKT testing found the adductors and medial gastrocnemius overworking, causing medial knee pain, and the internal oblique underworking. This is typical of an Anterior Oblique Subsystem dysfunction. Released the adductors and gastrocnemius, then activated the internal oblique.
But the posterior knee area still hurt. Then NKT testing found the hamstrings and soleus overworking and the psoas underworking. Released the hamstrings and soleus, then activated the psoas. Now his knee felt much better.

My client told me she felt her shoulder was unstable, like it could dislocate at any moment. She also had neck pain. When I hear the shoulder feels unstable I check the rotator cuff. NKT testing found both the infraspinatus and subscapularis underworking and the scalenes overworking. The scalenes were so tight that the first rib was elevated preventing smooth shoulder movement. Released the scalenes and activated the infraspinatus and subscap. Now the shoulder felt much more stable, smoother movement, and no neck pain.
New client, former college baseball pitcher, now has mid back and neck pain when he winds up to throw a ball. He points to the area on his spine where the middle trapezius attaches. The mid trap is used during the "cocking" motion of throwing. NKT testing found the mid trap underworking and the thoracic and cervical erectors overworking. Released the thoracic and cervical erectors, then activated the mid trap. He was now able to do the throwing motion without discomfort.
New client, 3 months post rotator cuff surgery for the supraspinatus now has upper trap and neck pain. Since the supraspinatus is involved in abduction of the shoulder that seemed to make sense. NKT has a very important motto, test don't guess. NKT testing found the supraspinatus quite functional, but the subscapularis was not. Released the upper trap and neck extensors on that side, then activated the subscap. Now her shoulder felt stronger and her neck felt looser.
ELDOA Stretch L5-S1
Myofascial Isometric Stretch and decompression of the L5-S1 junction. Beneficial to do post-exercise and in the evening before bed.
New client, a young weightlifter, used too much weight, and now has lower back pain. His L5/S1 area hurts when he anteriorly or posteriorly tilts his pelvis. That told me his disc was compressed. The pain is more on the right. NKT testing found both psoas muscles underactive and the compressed disc overactive. Decompressed the disc and activated the psoas muscles. Anterior tilt better, but not posterior.
Then we found the quadratus lumborum underactive bilaterally in relationship to the overactive disc. Decompressed the L5/S1 and activated the QLs. Now the posterior tilt felt better.
In order to weightlift there has to be a certain amount of lumbar disc compression, but like anything else, too much of a good thing is rarely ever good.
New client, a referral from our mutual dentist, has jaw pain. With jaw pain I'm always curious if they have hip problems as well. She told me her sacroiliac area was being treated with injections, albeit unsuccessfully. She had a right lateral deviation when closing her mouth. NKT testing found her right masseter and digastric, and left lateral pterygoid overworking and her right quadrates lumborum underworking. Released the jaw muscles and activated the QL. The deviation improved dramatically.
Then we found the jaw and sacroiliac joint overactive and the abs underactive. Released there jaw muscles, decompressed the SIJ bilaterally, and activated the abs.Now the jaw was even more relaxed. With longstanding cases of TMJ, check the pelvis.
Zoom client, 6 months pregnant, with a history of lower back pain/L4-5 disc degeneration. Her left lower back was aggravated making it difficult to sit or turn over. NKT testing found her left QL and erectors overworking and her abs underworking. Released the QL and erectors then activated the abs. Her left QL still hurt.
Then we found the left QL overworking and the right underworking. Released the left and activated the right. That helped her back pain some.
Her homework was done standing. After rolling out her lower back vs a wall she did wall planks. After that while standing she hiked her right hip up to activate the right QL. Homework and pregnancy require some innovation.

Different types of bone fractures
No matter what causes a #fracture, it usually falls into one of 2 categories: simple and compound fractures. They are then divided into many other categories.
1. Simple Fracture
Also called closed fractures, they occur when your bone suffers breakage but does'nt pierce through the epidermis.
2. Compound Fracture
It is opposite to simple fracture and is also known as an open fracture. There will be luxation of the bone and it will pierce through the epidermis. So it is more likely to develop an infection in this type of a fracture.
3. Oblique Fracture
In this type of fracture, the fissure runs diagonal to the axis of your bone. They are basically slanted fractures caused by an intense force applied at an oblique angle.
4. Transverse Fracture
This fracture is perpendicular to the axis of the bone. You get a transverse fracture when something applies serious force at a right angle to the bone.
5. Spiral Fracture
You have a spiral fracture when the fracture line twists around the bone. You get this type of fracture because of severe twisting force applied to the bone.
6. Comminuted Fracture
Among all different types of fractures, comminuted fracture is a serious one. The bone will be broken into several fragments. This is a highly complicated injury and usually heals quite slowly.
7. Liner Fracture
You have this type of fracture when the break is parallel to the long axis of the bone.
8. Greenstick Fracture
More common in children, it's partial fracture with 1 side of the bone unharmed. There will be #torsion on the other side of the bone though. This type of fracture usually heals quickly.
9. Impacted Fracture
This type of closed fracture occurs when there is too much pressure on 2 extremities of the bone. Bone splits into 2 fragments–the fragments will jam into each other.
10. Complete and Incomplete Fractures
You have a complete fracture if the bone is fragmented completely. It's an incomplete fracture when 2 pieces of the bone partially avulse from each other–there will be some connection left between both.
11. Compression Fracture
