Benefits of exercise

Neck extension of the 1st level on functional FISIO hinges.

This exercise is aimed at improving the flexibility of the neck muscles. The mobility and flexibility of the neck is important for performing turns and tilts of the head. Full-fledged movement of the neck muscles helps to prevent potential injuries.  

Due to improper posture, sitting at a desk, increased stress, the muscles of the cervical spine are spasmed. This increases the risk of developing pain in the shoulders, neck and head. Stretching the neck muscles can help relieve tension and swelling in the cervical-collar area. Improve blood circulation of the brain, concentration and efficiency.
