Cervical Strength Training

Cervical Strength Training

 

Head and neck injuries are often an occupational risk in many collision sports. In some cases, such as combat sports, head injuries are unavoidable.

Consequently, head trauma can result in concussion, cranial fractures, haematomas, and fatalities.

Although there is no full-proof answer to cancel out these types of injuries, neck strength can significantly reduce the severity of head and neck injuries through targeted strengthening of neck musculature.

This is easily achieved by using correct techniques applied by an experienced therapist or even more effectively by using specific exercise machines that target neck extensors, flexors and lateral flexors.
