Keep The Neck On The Rails

Neck Nods

The upper neck and back is built to maximise front to back movement. The joints and vertebrae are arranged like a train track running up and down the spine. Neck Nods are a great exercise to get the neck and upper back moving and sliding easily along the same direction the rails are facing.

Neck Nods:

Teaching the neck to move “on the rails” is much easier, more comfortable and less irritating than going side to side. Always start here first.

This is a mobility exercise, not a static stretch/ the more you do it the more you’ll “grease the groove” and roll further forwards and backwards.
