Cervical Spine Retractions with Head Lifts

Cervical Spine Retractions with Head Lifts

Cervical Spine Retractions with Head Lifts are one of the best exercises to strengthen your neck and stabilize the small bones that make up your Cervical spine. This exercise is excellent if you suffer from neck pain, jaw pain, or headaches!

To begin, Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor.
Lift your arms over your head and flatten the small of your back against the floor.
Gradually tuck your chin in, so that you feel the muscles on the back of your neck lengthen.
Keep your chin tucked in as you lift your head off the floor. Hold this position. Keep you chin tucked in as you lower your head back down again to rest. Perform 2 sets for 10 repetitions.
