Neck Flexion Overview

Our neck muscles play an important role in supporting our heads and helping us maintain good posture. When these muscles are weak, we are more likely to slump forward, which can lead to back pain and other health problems. Exercising our neck muscles regularly can help to keep them strong and healthy.

The muscles which work for neck flexion are the sternocleidomastoid, the scalenes, and the pectoralis minor. All of these muscles attach to the base of the skull and originate along the front of the ribcage. They work together to pull your head backward and forward.

How to Do It

  • Stand and straighten your spine.
  • Bend your head downwards.
  • Now, try to touch your chin on your chest without opening your mouth.
  • Return to the starting position.

Neck Flexion Tips

  • When doing any type of neck flexion exercise, be sure to take precautions to avoid injuring your neck.
  • Make sure that you are using a stable surface to support your head and do not strain too hard or you could cause yourself an injury.
  • If you experience any pain or discomfort while doing these exercises, stop immediately and consult a doctor.
