The knee bone is connected to the thigh bone, the hamstrings to the suboccipitals

The knee bone is connected to the thigh bone, the hamstrings to the suboccipitals

I found this short article on Carson Boddicker’s blog pretty interesting. In it he talks about how release of the suboccipitals  through a simple PNF stretch can result in a greater increase in hip mobility than a similar treatment for the hamstrings themselves. This is of particular interest for the office worker/runner since I’ve yet to come across anybody who spends any amount of time in front of a PC who didn’t need work to both areas but the suboccipitals in particular and yet again highlights the interconnected nature of our body.
