Helping Restore your Cervical Curve
Helping restore your cervical curve
The neck (when viewed from the side), should have a natural, semi-circular curve called the cervical lordosis. Car accidents, falls, poor posture all contribute to abnormal cervical lordosis, putting you at greater risk of adverse nerve, ligament and muscle function. Abnormal Cervical Lordosis may lead to a number of health-related disorders.
What do I need to do to help restore my Cervical Curve?
In addition to spinal adjustments performed by your chiropractor, we recommend a series of daily, gentle rehabilitation exercises to help restore your curve.
- Stand against a wall with your heels, backside and shoulder blades against the wall. Move your head backwards and hold it against the wall. Hold this position for 1 minute. Do this morning and night.
- Use a rolled-up towel, or the DENNEROLL device (available for purchase at reception).
The DENNERROLL is more specific than a towel. It is a cervical orthotic device, and its unique design provides a gentle but effective stretch that assists in the correction of abnormal Cervical Lordosis (see below).
Please contact your chiropractor to see which Dennerroll and traction method usage is correct for you!
