Pretty much everyone on our clinical team is an anatomy nerd. When we hang out in the Psoas break room, we often find ourselves in the middle of an impromptu anatomy lesson — it's pretty great! But since we don't want to keep all the fun to ourselves, we're going to start bringing the anatomy lessons to you from time to time.

The suboccipitals are a group of muscles at the base of your skull, partly responsible for the head's ability to move on the neck. Suboccipitals tend to be way overworked in desk workers, so understanding this muscle group can help make important adjustments in your movement patterns. Check it out, and let us know what you think!
