The Deep Neck Flexors (DNFs) are a group of muscles located deep in the neck and provide stability and support for the head and neck. Poor posture over a long period of time can weaken the DNFs and result in a ‘forward head posture’.
People with a history of neck or upper back injury, such as whiplash, can show great improvement in pain and function if they strengthen these muscles.
At Wellness Embodied we utilise pressure biofeedback and laser retraining to assist our patients in restoring normal neck mechanics, joint position sense and postural awareness.
Our You Tube Channel, Wellness Embodied Cairns, contains 2 physiotherapy exercises for neck pain. This one, you can do at home to assist with proprioception and more. In this second video, Suzanne shows you how to use the pressure biofeedback to assist with neck strengthening- this can be shown in our small group Rehab Room sessions, located in our Cairns Physiotherapy Practice.
