Stuart Hinds demonstrates taping technique for levator scapulae trigger points
Taping for Trigger Points - Levator Scapulae
The levator scapulae is deep to the SCM and the trapezius. It is named after its action of elevating the scapula. It also helps bend the neck laterally.
Trigger points in the levator scapulae typically refer pain in a triangular pattern from the top of the scapula to the nape of the neck.
In some cases pain will also refer slightly to the medial border of the scapula and the posterior of the glenohumeral joint.
Stuart Hinds is one of Australia's leading soft tissue therapists and is internationally recognized for his work with the Australian Olympic Teams (Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012).
