Evidence has shown that individuals with neck disorders (including headaches) often have impaired strength and control through their deep cervical flexor muscles.
These are the muscles that help you maintain neck stability and good posture. In simple terms, they are responsible for keeping your head in line with your body! If they are weakened, your head can sit too far forward, your posture gets worse, and this can lead to a cascade of issues through your neck and upper back muscles and joints.
The good news? These muscles are easy to train and can help reduce tension and pain through your neck.
Have a look at the video to check out an easy exercise to incorporate into your day and start strengthening those muscles!
