Are You Engaging Your Deep Neck Flexors?

*medium difficulty neck posture Jun 06, 2023

The deep neck flexors are a group of muscles that support and stabilize your head. They need to be able to engage in order to maintain a comfortable upright posture. When the head migrates forward this group of muscles becomes inhibited and cannot activate. People who do a lot of sitting or computer work often have persistent forward head posture causing chronic inhibition of the deep neck flexors. It can get to the point where you may not be able to activate them at all. Without support from the deep neck flexors the joints of the neck become more compressed and prone to arthritic breakdown. This exercise will reactivate and strengthen the muscles that support and stabilize your head helping you realign your head on your body and allow for less pain and an easier time turning your neck.
