It's All About Posture
At some point of our lives, all of us have heard the familiar phrase “sit up straight!", but how many of us have been told to correct our head posture?
The goal of cervical retraction exercises is to strengthen you head and neck area. If you suffer from back, shoulder, or neck pain, then these exercises are a must. You may not realize that your head weighs about eight pounds. If your head is not aligned correctly, this can put a lot of stress on the cervical spine joints and cervical nerves.
Over time, this can result in arthritis and degenerative changes of the cervical spine. The lower neck is where the nerves which connect to your neck muscles, upper back, shoulders, arms, and arms are located. When these nerves are damaged, it can result in numbness and tingling in the arms and hands as well as neck pain.
We will discuss exercises all of which can be done at your convenience while you are watching TV, in the car, or even at the office.
