Palpation and assessment of the Levator Scapulae

October 3, 2011

In this video we demonstrate the misconceptions surrounding the location, and palpation of the Levator Scapulae muscle.  The ‘Levator’ is a very commonly quoted muscle by manual therapists as the root cause of neck and upper back pain…however anatomical analysis demonstrates that the muscle is far removed from the location that most assume it to be!  The proper location/palpation technique is demonstrated here which highlights the importance of specific palpation technique as is taught in the FUNCTIONAL ANATOMIC PALPATION SYSTEMS (F.A.P.) seminars.
