Exercises: Neck Isometrics
To start, sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Your weight should be slightly forward so that you’re balanced evenly on your buttocks. Relax your shoulders and keep your head level. Using a chair with arms may help you keep your balance.
Press your palm against your forehead. Resist with your neck muscles. Hold for 10 seconds. Relax. Repeat 5 times.
Do the exercise again, pressing on the side of your head. Repeat 5 times. Switch sides.
Do the exercise again, pressing on the back of your head. Repeat 5 times.
For your safety, check with your healthcare provider before starting an exercise program.
