Neck Flexion - Gravity Resistance
Lay on back with head over edge of bed.
Slowly allow the head to extend back and drop past the edge of the bed until a comfortable stretch in the front of the neck is felt. Allowing the mouth to open as the head is extended back will decrease pull on the anterior neck musculature. Then, bring the head back to the starting position and hold for a count of ___ seconds*.
If you have problems with balance or dizziness, perform this stretch in the seated position.
