Clinical Study: The omohyoid muscle rising to the surface when vocalizing

In a clinical study I investigated 100 people who have reported the issue of their omohyoid muscle rising to the surface when vocalizing. The following results showcase if one or both sides is the most common.
78 people had the right or left omohyoid muscle rise to the surface when vocalizing
22 people had both sides of their omohyoid muscle rise to the surface when vocalizing
In conclusion, results suggest that more than 80% of people have only ‘one side’ of their omohyoid muscle rise to the surface when vocalizing. Please see the below photos to identify this action.

Note: 98 of the 100 people are at a glance candidates for having LDP(Larynx Deep Position). I can see a direct connection between people having LDP if their omohyoid muscle rises up to the surface when vocalizing.
