Neck exercises at home with resistance
Resistive Neck Exercisers for neck pain, headaches, shoulder and arm pains and tingling in the arm.
What is the aim?
Restoration and prevention of neck related problems and headache1 originating from:
- Poor posture
- Weakness in neck muscles and reduced mobility due to insufficient use and lack of exercise
- Chronic pain and whiplash injury
How is it needed?
Human body is designed to move, however, it seems like, the more we urbanised the less we tend to move. This has been causing early development of majority of the problems in the neck due to progressive weakness and wear and tear.
Currently, there is no tool that can be used and taken home by patients to exercise neck muscles resistively especially the rotator muscles. In a way that, resistance can be applied precisely in all directions and at any degree of the range and movement.
It is suitable for health professionals and their patients.
It is unique in terms of resistance application to movements. It can be used by allied health professionals and GPs
Firstly, it applies a constant, progressive resistance to neck muscles. Resistance is known to be a major contributor for relaxation in muscles due to autonomic reflex loops and building strength.
Secondly, different patterns of movements can be applied, like coupled movements such as flexion, left lateral flexion and rotation or extension right lateral flexion and left rotation or as in quadrants or simply rotation to one side. Resistance can be applied at any range of a movement and progress from there.
The healing effects of resistive exercises on chronic pain, weakness in muscles, reduced motor control and adaptive motor behaviour have been studied intensely over years.
I believe that the resistive neck exercisers can be extremely effective and helpful for the self-management of the neck problems. It can be advised by anyone who's familiar with human body biomechanics, concept of motor control training and muscle physiology.
