Neck Gnarl, Sleeping, and Other Stories
Just to complete some of my thoughts about neck issues and what you can do with the neck congestion, here are a few videos from Dr. Katy Bowman (biomechanics awesomeness) and Kelly Starrett, a PT, cross fit man, and maker of hilarious videos.
This first one is a roll-out plus anatomy drive-by with Kelly Starrett and Jill Miller, and it's a doozy.
This quick video is a promotional byte for Katy's program, but it also illustrates the issues of forward head position, just in case you missed it last week, or are still confused.
How are you sleeping? To keep your neck happy as you sleep, don't sleep on your belly! While there is no universally agreed upon pillow position for sleeping (Dr Bowman says no pillow!), the first half of this video gives great insight into some sleeping problems that might be going on for you sometimes.
