Last week was Tinnitus Awareness Week in Australia, so lets learn a little bit about the condition.

These will seem a bit strange at first! But I give these ‘union jack’ exercises to lots of patients with neck pain, headaches and other strength deficits. Some of the main reasons why the deep neck flexors (stabilising neck muscles) can become weak include forward head postures, pain and whiplash.
