InSync Physiotherapy Neck Extension Mobility “SNAG”

InSync Physiotherapy Neck Extension Mobility “SNAG”


Today’s exercise will give you a pain-free
way to regain mobility in your neck, particularly in neck extension (looking up). The goal of this exercise is to allow you
to either maintain the mobility in your neck after you see your physiotherapist or when
you find that the extension motion is limited. 1) Find the right spot. Locate the fold in the bottom of your neck
when you look up. 2) Use the edge of an unrolled towel pulling
towards the direction of your eyes. 3) This exercise has to be 100% pain-free
so maintain the direction of pull with your towel during the motion. 4) Start by pulling the towel towards the
level of your eyes. Sustain this pull and look up. 5) Complete this 3 times for 3-5 second holds
daily. Remember, you should feel NO PAIN during this
exercise. If you find it painful, try modifying the
angle of pull to find a pain-free zone. If you cannot find a pain-free zone, then
do not perform this exercise and contact your treating therapist.
