Let's Talk Neck Pain...

Do You Think You Have Good Range of Motion in Your Neck?

Can you rotate your neck so that your chin is in line with your shoulder ---- WITHOUT moving your shoulders or your entire torso?

What a common occurrence in the clinic to see someone tell me that they think their range of motion in their neck is pretty good, only to discover they cheat entirely by moving their shoulders or even their entire torso. 

Full range of motion in the neck is so important for your health and frankly for the drivers around you. 

So what does full range of motion look like? 

  1. You should be able to touch or nearly touch your chin to your chest. 

  1. Your ear should be able to come within an inch of your shoulder without lifting the opposite shoulder (sitting on the opposite hand helps prevent this) 

  1. You should be able to balance a glass on your forehead when looking up. 

  1. Last but not least, you should be able to line up your chin with your shoulder when turning without moving your shoulder forward or turning your torso.  

If you can not do one or all of these you could really use our help.  The older you are the more important this is.  However, the younger you are the better to achieve and keep these ranges. 

Book an assessment today to have your range of motion assessed and given a treatment plan to improve and maintain for life.  I will be demonstrating some stretches that can help on this week’s Facebook live below. 

Have a great week and Live Well.
