If you experience neck pain, suffer from headaches, or simply want to release daily tension, this four-week program will restore movement and retrain neck muscles and stabilizers so you can move pain-free.
Mobility is the foundation of a healthy spine, and when we understand the common causes of neck pain, we become empowered to build better habits. In this four-week course, Matt and MacKenzie guide you through corrective and preventative exercises to improve range of motion, reduce tension, and address discomfort.
Matt earned his doctoral degree in Physical Therapy in 2010, and has helped countless clients at his PT facility near Cleveland, Ohio. MacKenzie is a certified personal trainer, whose passion centers on functional movement and mobility.
During the first two weeks of this series, emphasis is placed on restoring movement and improving soft tissue quality in the cervical and thoracic spine. Several therapeutic tools including therapy balls (or foam roller), yoga straps, and a yoga block will be used to improve tissue health and range of motion. The final two weeks of the plan will gradually progress you through cervical and scapular strengthening exercises to improve posture and restore functional movement patterns. Building cervical and scapular strength is vital to achieving good posture thus, preventing and reducing neck pain.
