InSync Physiotherapy – Neck Mobility Exercise #2: Stiff neck from whiplash, strain or trauma


This next exercise is a mobility exercise
that I generally use for upper quarter complaints. So that would be a stiff neck, stiff shoulder
or stiff mid -back. It should be done comfortably several times
per day. I usually start with 5 reps 5 times a day
and then work my way up. You can experience a bit of discomfort or
pain and I’ll demonstrate the exercise right now. So you simply point your thumbs up and you
just want to move through a fews reps of this throughout the day. You might experience a tinge of discomfort
or a tinge of pinching in the mid back for example. That would be very very normal especially
in the early cases of acute onset of neck pain or mid back pain. It can be quite helpful even after a car accident
where everything seems to seize up a bit. So Again, it’s a very simple motion up and
down and you can experience a bit of discomfort and that’s completely fine. I would do it several times a day. Start with 5 reps of 5 sets and then work
your way up from there.
