Neck Backward Tilt Isometric Exercise - Flexion

Exercise Details

These exercises should only be performed after evaluation by a qualified medical professional and under their instruction. Should you experience pain or discomfort while doing an exercise, stop immediately.

Exercise Instructions

This is a three-stage exercise. Sit comfortably in an upright position. Your head is erect. First, place your palm in the middle of your forehead. Your fingers are pointing upward. Using your hand to provide gentle continuous resistance, try to tilt your head forward. Imagine you're trying to touch your head to your chest. Make sure you're only using your neck muscles. Don't tilt your whole body.

You'll feel your neck muscles contracting. This is an isometric exercise, so you're not really going anywhere. Apply continuous muscular contraction and continuous gentle resistance for 6 seconds. Gently relax and return to the starting position.

Next, begin by tilting your head forward, to about halfway of your pain-free range of motion. Place your palm in the middle of your forehead. Apply gentle continuous resistance as you try to tilt your head forward. Apply continuous muscular contraction and continuous gentle resistance for 6 seconds. Gently relax and return to the starting position.

Next, tilt your head forward, reaching your full pain-free range of motion. Repeat the isometric exercise as before for 6 seconds. Gently relax and return to the starting position.
