Neck Strain Injuries – Core Neck Strength Basic Rows

A successful rehab regime for your neck injury means being able to get stronger in your upper quadrant and scapular muscles with your core neck stability strength. This is a good exercise to help with that.

Using a looped band, make sure it’s anchored to a sturdy object. Then wrap the band around yourself, the band should be around your shoulder blades and in line with the back of your shoulder and armpit. Ensure you have your arms on the inside of the band.

Press the tip of your tongue up against the roof of your mouth to engage the deep neck core stability muscles. With your knees slightly bent, begin to row or pull your shoulders and elbows back.

Focus on pulling your shoulders and the shoulder blades back against the resistance of the band. Repeat this for 10 repetitions doing 3 sets daily.
