There are numerous muscles involved in controlling the neck, but, for some reason, many exercise programs neglect this region of the body. Adding a few simple exercises, like the ones found in this program, may help reduce symptoms you are currently experiencing and/or work to prevent future neck problems.
Previous research has shown that neck pain can alter the way in which these muscles function and, potentially, predispose one to future neck pain episodes. Like many pain problems, the story is complex and not totally clear on the relationship between the activity of these muscles and pain. However, some patients do report less neck pain and fewer episodes of future pain when implementing exercises that address these muscles.
In some individuals with neck pain, a number of changes to the surrounding musculature have been documented and can be broadly classified as either changes to physical structure (atrophy, fatty infiltration, fiber type) or behavior (timing and level of recruitment). It is hypothesized that specific neuromuscular training programs for the neck may work to reduce pain by creating the necessary stimuli to eliminate the negative adaptations that have occurred secondary to pain and/or injury.
If you are experiencing neck pain, this program will help reduce pain and improve your overall function.
