I’ll get Chris to demonstrate.
This simple chin tuck movement is an excellent exercise when it comes to adjusting your neck. You can do this exercise anywhere.
Make sure that you are in good alignment, in a nice straight line position from the side, then do the exercise. Tilt your head down and bring the chin back, elongating the back of the head to a point where you are back in your alignment.
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 light stretch on the back of the head if you really tight there. Make sure it is just a light 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.
So, make sure to give this exercise a go. This will help you with your forward head posture and will give you a nice adjustment in your neck if you stick with it and do it for a number of days.
