Neck Rotation – Hand Resistance

rot handresisted


Seated or standing.


The goal of this exercise is to contract the neck muscles without allowing movement of the head. Place your hand on the side of the head. Then, gently turn the head into your hand. Provide enough resistance with your hand so that your head is not able to turn. Gradually increase the pressure with the head to a comfortable tolerance, hold this pressure for ___ seconds*, and gradually relax. Then, perform on the opposite side.

Important Tip:

If you have problems with balance or dizziness, perform this stretch in the seated position.
