Deep Neck Stabilisation Exercises

Researchers have discovered that just like on the lower spine, your neck has deep stability muscles that control and stabilise the individual neck joints.

Pain and injury is known to cause weakness of these muscles, which cauese the neck joints to slip and slide out of their normal pain-free joint positions and results in pain or neck joints that easily click and clunk. Instability in this area is also a contributer to headaches.

Your physiotherapist is a skilled practitioner who can assess the holding capacity of these deep neck muscles. If there is a deficit, they will prescribe corrective exercises to resolve your stability muscles to normal, which will ease your pain in the short-term and help to prevent repeat bouts in the future.
