ANATOMY: Facial Muscles. Tension first builds on the face, learn to loosen up! The muscles of the face are unique among groups of muscles in the body. While most muscles connect to and move only bones, facial muscles mostly connect bones to skin.
Causes: bad posture, desk, over exercising, injury. Over time, a muscular imbalance occurs known as The Upper Crossed Syndrome which ELEVATES the first rib. Then, shoulder muscles (the subscap, and infraspinatus) get trigger points, weakness and pain. Now, the shoulder is unable to move normally. Then ppl compensate for the pain by rounding the shoulders FWD and jutting the head OUT further from the neck. The neck m (scalenes, serratus anterior, and scm) overcomp, worsening trigger points.
