If you’re working at a desk, chances are your platysma could use some stretching. But do you know where to find it? For this week’s Quick Tip, start by checking out a platysma anatomy lesson from Psoas clinical director Scott Schwartz.

Even if you don’t have any neck or back pain now, this is a great protocol to improve alignment and prevent discomfort in the future. Try it out, and let us know what you notice!
