Radiology - reading CTA:
There sure is a lot going on in the image cross sections! So interesting!!
Library of medical books. More than I anticipated.
There’s an impressively comprehensive list of medical topics on that site! The link you posted for muscles of the head is fascinating.
Here’s a fun fact - it takes more muscles to frown than to smile. Therefore smiling is less work!!
Thx for another useful & helpful link, @vdm!!
Okay, so just a few minutes ago a new episode came out and…
I don’t want to spoil your YouTube binging session, but I think the PT is onto something I have been trying to speculate for quite a long time.
Neck pain might be caused by stiff scalene/SCM muscles. These muscles (and others) might be contributing to loss of cervical lordosis.
What the PT states, the SCM/Scalenes might be stiff as they are overworked because of improper breathing where diaphragm is underused and rib-cage breathing is overused.
And obviously, stiff SCM and scalenes may impact IJVs and, I would say not impossible, to some extent either directly or indirectly, arterial inflow too.
And ah, the breathing is related to our posture and habits.

A very popular anatomy learning channel
It’s all about the layers on layers on layers of back muscles. No wonder they can make the whole back, ribcage, shoulders and neck stiff.

You find the most amazing videos about the body! Thank you for posting this one! It goes beyond “a picture is worth a thousand words”!
Now, can you name all those muscles?!
He probably can!
Another AMAZING video!! Thank you!
There’s so much good information out there. Thank you for filtering some of the best stuff out and sharing it with us, @vdm!

This channel has a series of short videos on how to perform self-release on various muscles.
Content quality is OKish, but easy to navigate and follow.
