Activity: Chin tuck with nod: deep neck flexor strengthening

200-041

Summary:

A simple mobilization for the upper neck, reduces forward shear of the vertebrae and strengthens the deep neck flexors in the upper cervical region.

Description:

  • laying back with your head on a pillow, start with your neck in a neutral position
  • keeping your head level (ie: eyes looking straight toward the ceiling) gently press the back of your head into the pillow
  • carefully flex or "nod" your head, without lifting the back of your head from the pillow
  • if you feel the large muscles in the front of your neck engage, then you are incorrectly lifting the weight of your head
