IASTM for Cervical Retraction

In this 28 min video I review

  • rationale for why IASTM works
  • how to improve cervical retraction, and upright sitting
  • the goal to improve cervical retraction is to make the patient load in a novel strategy that resets upper quarter complaints
  • after restoring the ability to sit more upright, and perform active cervical retraction, the patient should then perform cervical retraction with passive overpressure on the maxilla and if needed sidebending or rotation if they have unilateral loss in either of those
