Neck Exercises: Active Neck Rotation

Woman lying on back doing active neck rotation exercise. To start, lie on your back, knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Keep your ears, shoulders, and hips aligned, but don’t press your lower back to the floor. Rest your hands on your pelvis. Breathe deeply and relax.

  • Use your neck muscles to turn your head to one side until you feel a stretch in the muscles.

  • Hold for 5 seconds. Then turn to the other side.

  • Repeat 5 times on each side.

Note: Keep your shoulders on the floor. Don’t lift or tuck your chin as you turn your head.
