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.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    Bradley R.
  • "This place is *amazing.* I had, no exaggeration, 8+ months of ongoing headaches. I had Neurologists trying to put me on medicines that I was petrified to even consider (anti-seizure ones, etc.); after 6-8 weeks here, my headaches have subsided and almost gone away completely. The doctors and staff are all very caring, thorough, and knowledgeable. This was the best decision I've made to come here."
    Jillian C.
  • "The whole office staff is amazing. I had severe back pain which prevented me from sleeping, and after a few visits I was so much better! I continue to come for adjustments to maintain my back. Thank... you for taking care of my back!"
