Upper Crossed Syndrome Explained

    

Postural muscles tend to have a greater percentage of Type 1 fibers. This characteristic may lead to a more resistant type of trigger point.

The majority of your clients may have occupations that involve prolonged sitting, often at a computer screen, and increased use of mobile devices and tablets.

Ergonomics is a booming industry, focusing on the interactions of people and their working environments; however, not all workplaces can afford to implement proper ergonomic interventions.

Long and monotonous days spent in front of a computer screen often lead to chronic and maladapted postures, which in turn may lead to trigger points.

Over time, these trigger points make their host muscles shorter and less efficient. These "postural" trigger points may be responsible for up to 95% of common back and shoulder pain disorders.

Wherever possible, it is essential to identify the client's postural abnormalities, as shown in the video on this page.

Trigger Points and Posture

When you talk with your clients about the importance of posture and trigger points, they will usually appreciate the advice, and start to schedule for more frequent massage, trigger point and bodywork sessions ... and that helps them to be healthier and happier!

Trigger points are common in the following postural structures: upper trapezius, levator scapulae, sternocleidomastoideus (SCM), erector spinae, musculoligamentous apparatus of the lumbar spine, gluteus medius, and gastrocnemius/soleus complex.
