Neck Pain Prevention: Chin Tuck Exercise Video

Chin tucks help stretch your neck muscles, and they also help you maintain better posture.

You can do chin tucks while on your back, standing, or sitting (that means you can even do these at the office).

  • Move your chin towards your chest, holding for 5 seconds as you feel a comfortable stretch from your neck to the base of your skull.
  • Repeat 10 times.

This exercise may not be appropriate for all types of pain.  If you experience increased pain while doing this exercise, stop immediately and call your spine specialist.  Always contact your spine specialist if you have any questions regarding your back or neck pain or about the suitability of this specific exercise.
