I hope you are all doing well, and have had an amazing summer!
With all the rain happening off and on, everyone’s allergies have been miserable, including mine. I’d had a horrible headache for almost a week, with NetiPot, Epsom salt baths, and my usual allergy arsenal barely touching it.
So! I poured over all my reference books for a good while before I turned to YouTube to look for cervical spine stretches (I know I talked about TMJ and Forward Head Posture in one of my previous posts, but I couldn’t even get comfortable enough to do those stretches!) I finally found this video by Dr. Paula Moore:

Do them. Every time you find yourself craning your neck forward or propping it way too high when watching tv; straighten up, stretch the crown of your head as if you are trying to touch the ceiling, and do.these.stretches.
They will change your cervical spine’s life. :)
