Reduce Neck Pain With Chin Tucks
Chin tucks are a very useful exercise to help strengthen the deep and lower cervical flexor muscles and stretch the scalene and suboccipital muscles. Chin tucks may reduce cervical pain and help correct a forward head posture, a common result of Text Neck.
How To Perform A Chin Tuck
Relax your head, neck, and shoulders.
Keep your eyes, nose, and chin facing forward.
Place two fingers on your chin and add gentle pressure as you glide your head back.
Keep your eyes level.
Hold 3 to 5 seconds. Bring your head forward.
Repeat 10 times, twice a day.
Perform this exercise pain-free.
