Having fun with an upper cervical model

Not quite sure if any of you have ever done this or thought about it, but I’ve played around with this in the past and thought it would be fun to share.

I’ve taken an upper cervical model (enlarged model of lower cranium, C1, C2, and C3) and placed leukotape where the suboccipitals muscles are (now that I think about it… I should’ve you kinesiotape!).  As well as red pipe cleaners along the path of the vertebral artery.  Pretty cool to see these in a representation beyond just what you see in a book or on an app.  Can you name out all the suboccipitals and their actions?  If not, this model could easily help!

Would love to hear your thoughts below 🙂



Have a great day!
