This simple chin tuck movement is an excellent exercise when it comes to adjusting your neck. You can do this exercise anywhere. 

Chin Tuck

Chin Tuck

The first thing you want to do before moving your head is making sure it’s aligned. If you are rounding through the shoulders and back, then all that’s happening is promoting your poor forward head posture. You need to be in good alignment before starting out with a nice tall posture where the weight of our heads on our shoulders and hips stacked up straight from side-to-side.

Three Things to Work On

So after doing this exercise, there are three things we’re going to work on: tilting down their chin while tucking or pulling the back of their neck into place so that they feel aligned; for some people, we’ll ask them to grab onto a chair post as well which will help elongate the spine again when they have a round shoulder position or behind scapulas at end range extension (if necessary).

If your head posture is really bad, you might feel really tight in the back of your head. You don’t want to over force it or push through it because it will irritate the tissue which and lead to neck pain and headaches. Look for a slight stretch on the back of the head if you really tight there. Make sure it is just a slight stretch; don’t overdo it.

Do one set of 5 repetitions, holding the end position for 5 seconds. Progress up to 10 repetitions, holding the end position for 10 seconds. This exercise can be done every day throughout the day, but make sure you don’t do 100 of them in a row. Overdoing the exercise will irritate the tissue which will lead to neck pain and headaches.

A way to do this is by doing it every day and making sure not to do 100 of them consecutively. Doing too many can cause the tissue in your neck to become irritated leading to pain or headaches. Make sure you take some time off from these exercises if they start making your neck sore! 

Checking Out Five Tricks

If forward head posture is something you struggle with, I recommend checking out my Five Tricks report on the subject for more information about how that problem presents itself and what things might be causing it. When you’re ready just let me know where I should send that report and I’ll have one sent straight over.
