The neck exerciser comes as a kit, designed as a tool for resistance often recommended by chiropractors and physical therapists to assist with increasing neck muscle strength and range of motion for rehabilitation of cervical spine injuries and to help prevent future injuries related to whiplash auto accidents and whiplash type injuries as well as concussion forces associated with sports and other activities.

Although many will find the tubing included to suffice for most instances. The unique head harness and head strap allows use of interchangeable resistance tubing to progressively advance to reach your goals. The harness fits snugly around the head and uses 4 points to attach the tubes, while the strap uses 1 point. All ranges of motion can be used either standing or sitting: Flexion (forward and to right and left sides), Extension (backward bending, and Rotation (turning to right and left sides).

Head Harness Kit Door Mounting System

As part of the modular system, the door mount allows convenient mounting of the strap or harness in a closed door. The mount will fit along the length of the door for standing and sitting positions. It also allows angling of the tension for specific areas of muscles and muscle groups. Make sure the door is securely closed and locked. Test the mount for stability before engaging the head harness neck exerciser.

Progressive Resistance Tubes

progressive resistance tubeWhen you are ready, you can upgrade to new levels of strength. We suggest you use the basic kit for 4 to 6 weeks before progressing to a higher strength to give you time to get used to the system and exercises, allowing the muscles to reach this level of strength, or as prescribed by your doctor or therapist.

The neck strengthening system employs sturdy modular tubing for safe and effective rehab and strengthening neck exercises. The tubing is a single section design along with sturdy fittings. The standard tube clip ends are plastic, except the higher resistance blue and black, which use metal. Contains natural rubber. The tube stretches up to 3 times the length and when used within these parameter, will not snap.

Strengthening through progressive resistance training will challenge your neck muscles with strong counterforce resistance tubing. By progressively increasing resistance, you make the neck muscles stronger. This exerciser system will increase muscle mass, tones the muscles, as well as strengthens cervical spine bones. It not only can be used to alleviate pain and rehab injuries, but also helps maintain superior strength needed everyday home and work activities.

Generally, strengthening exercises should be done a minimum of 2 times a week. A set typically consists of 8 – 12 repetitions of each movement, working up to 2 -3 sets per movement. The muscles should have 48 hours for recovering from each strength training session. This is a smoother and safer form of strengthening than heavy weights.

Tips For Using The Head Harness Neck Exerciser & Strap Kits

Use these tips to help keep neck strength training both effective and safe.

Use some general stretching for 5 to 10 minutes to warm up before exercising and to cool down after working out.

Make sure your focus is on correct form. Keep your body aligned correctly and use smooth motions throughout each exercise from start to finish. Jerking and fast motions can cause injury, slowing benefit and progress. Your warm up can consist of doing a couple repetitions of each exercise without the resistance band, concentrating on smooth motions and good form.

Using good tempo will help your maintain control. You can count 3 seconds or a quicker count to 5 when pulling, then hold and again use the count when returning to the starting position to get the negative.

Make sure you are breathing while exercising. Exhale when you pull against the resistance tube and inhale when releasing pressure.

You can continue to challenge the neck muscles by increasing to higher level bands slowly, over a period of weeks. Getting to the right level is up to you , your doctor or therapist and goals set. Many will not have to increase the strength of the tubing, just increase the number of sets. A goal would be to have the targeted muscles tire by the last 2 repetitions, yet still allows you to use good form. When it get too easy to do, you can upgrade the resistance tube to the next level, or simply do more repetitions or another set to the neck workout.

Maintain the exercise routine, 2 to 3 workouts a week is good. You can do all the motions in one workout, or do a couple one day and the others the next day, breaking it up into range of motion components.

Allow resting between sessions for any given muscle group. Training for strength can cause small tears in the muscle tissues. While not harmful, it is important because the muscles will become stronger when the tears heal up. So, allow 48 hours for recovery before the next neck exerciser strengthening session.

A 2020 study in the Journal of Biomechanics studied factors related to head injuries in contact sports and specifically football. The authors indicated active neck muscles significantly effect head injury. They recommend increasing muscle strength and eccentric multiplier (ability to apply greater muscle force) resulted in a significant reduction of head injuries.

The progressive neck exercise system allows smooth motions without overloading like weights. The smooth motion allows total control of pull and using negative resistance on the way back for a thorough neck muscle workout. Not meant for recent injuries, inflammation and swelling must be reduced. Consult your doctor prior to beginning any exercise routine.
