Overly tight neck muscles can cause a pinching of the nerves in the back of the neck, causing headaches.
Most of us spend our day with head forward and slumped postures. Some cases of occipital neuralgia may be related to poor posture. Doing chin tucks regularly can strengthen the posterior neck muscles that can help align the head over the shoulders while stretching the muscles and connective tissue in the suboccipital areas.
Try these exercises with the chin tucked to ensure proper positioning and a more effective stretch to relieve neck and head strain.
Do these multiple times a day to retrain your posture!
