Chin Tuck exercises for combating neck pain and improving posture.

Chin Tuck exercises for combating neck pain and improving posture.

Chin tuck exercises are most effective postural exercises for combating neck pain and improving posture. This exercise strengthens muscles that improve cervical spine alignment over the shoulders,  it also stretches the scalene and suboccipital muscles (muscles that attach to the back of the head). Consciously activating deep neck muscles can aid in reducing headaches and improving blood flow to the brain!


Chin Tuck
While lying on your back, tuck your chin towards your chest and press the back of your head into the floor.
Keep your head in contact with the ground throughout the exercise.
