Deep Anterior Cervical Strengthening

This is the first of three neck and head movements that targets the front of the neck. The deep muscles of the front of the neck counter balance the larger muscles of the back of the head, specifically the upper trapezius. The deep anterior neck muscles become inhbited when we hold our head forward for long periods of time. When we bring these deep muscles back online by activation, the tension in the neck lessens. Practice this movement lying down to feel these deep muscles and how heavy your head really is!
