The upper neck accounts for over 60% of the total motion in the neck. It is also the area where many of the powerful shoulder muscles attach. Therefore, it is an area that becomes very tight.

Be careful to do this gently and talk to one of our therapists if you are unsure of performing this exercise correctly.
