The Anatomical Relationship of the Head and Neck

The relative state of the head & neck is of primary importance in all vertebrates, including horses and humans - it effects the functioning of the whole rest of the musculo-skeletal system.

When the muscles at the back of the neck are over-contracted, the head is pulled into the spine which compresses, causing a chain of adaptive contractions throughout the body.

When the muscles at the back of the neck lengthen, the head tends away from the spine, which in turn lengthens, allowing optimum functioning in the rest of the body.
