Brief overview of the episode:

             Upper trapezius and levator scapulae are both muscles that sit between the shoulder and the neck. They are involved with the scapula (shoulder blade) and cervical (neck) motions.

            The upper trap is well known, levator scap no so much. But levator scap plays a bigger role in cervicogenic headache and forward head posture.
