Chin Tuck Benefits

  • Neck stretches are also involved in physical therapy that aims to rehabilitate the neck muscles, joints and bones. Neck stretches aims to increase the strength, tone and flexibility of the neck muscles. It also allows the ligaments on the neck joints to become more flexible and withstand increased stress to the area.
  • When the head and shoulders drift forward due to poor posture, some muscles in the chest and neck can shorten and become tight over time, which can perpetuate the poor posture that is causing neck pain. The neck stretching exercises can help loosen postural muscles and may reduce neck pain.
