Occupation series 1 : Property managers

Posted on August 8th, 2014 by Shari´ Parks

This is the beginning of a new series. Each week I will showcase an occupation that uses specific muscles or muscle groups. I will focus on one muscle that is commanded to work more frequently because of that occupation.

This week’s occupation is property managers. I’m talking about those individuals that own private properties, rehab them and then rent the property to tenants. On the front end, this type of occupation is extremely physical. Depending on how much rehabilitation is needed when the property is bought, hours can be spent on preparing it for a new tenant.

One part of the body that get’s alot of beating is the neck and between the shoulder blades. The muscle I’m referring to is called the Splenius Capitis. It’s a broad striplike muscle located in the back of the neck; anatomically called the cervical erector area. It connects the base of the skull to the vertebrae.

Some common pains that occur when this muscle is tight are:

* Radiating pain to the neck, shoulder and arm
* Rear of the head aches
* Temple headaches

There are several stretches for pain management. It’s important to do these stretches slow. One of my favorite stretches to this area is:

1.Sit with your chest up and hold onto the chair with one hand
2.Turn your head toward the hand that is holding onto the chair
3.Use your free hand to pull your head straight toward the opposite side
To feel more stretch, lean your body slightly away from the hand that is holding onto the chair to depress your shoulder further.
