This is a three-stage exercise. Sit comfortably in an upright position. Your head is erect. First, place your right (or left) hand on the back of your head. Using your hand to provide gentle continuous resistance, try to tilt your head backward. Imagine you're trying to touch your head to your shoulder blades. 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 and gently relax and return to the starting position.

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

Next, tilt your head backward, 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.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I want to acknowledge Dr. Miguel Arbez at Rosstown Chiropractic for his caring attention to my daughter and her sore back. Dr. Arbez had put in a whole Saturday at a health fair but at the end of the afternoon, opened his office to take care of her achy pains.
    I am happy to report that she is back to work and standing straight and tall again.
    Thank you so much for keeping her "well adjusted" we are happy to refer our friends to you, Miguel!"

  • "The complaints that led me to your office were neck and back pain and headaches. These complaints have improved significantly with regular visits to your office.
    I have also noticed improvements in my quality of sleep and ability to cope with daily problems as well as stress.
    I have shared these experiences with friends, family as well as co-workers. I would recommend Chiropractic care to others but would be specific as to what chiropractic office and what Chiropractor I would see."
