Neck Ups

Do not attempt these without direction from your doctor.

Spinal Strengthening for Patients with Spondylolisthesis / Hyperlordosis

Neck Up is designed to strengthen the muscles on the back of your neck. If you do a lot of sitting and have weak neck muscles, this exercise will be especially beneficial. Remember, good neck and upper back posture starts by sitting and standing with a strong, balanced position of the lower back.
