Upper Crossed Syndrome

Great exercise for strengthening the upper and mid back. For those with upper crossed syndrome, try adding this into your daily routine to reverse your muscle imbalances. 10 reps x 3 sets twice a day will get you some great results. Remember to SQUEEZE your shoulder blades together at the end of the movement (picture trying to hold a pencil between your shoulders). As always, if painful do not continue and/or call for a consult. Don't hurt yourself peeps!

This is a great exercise to help with forward head posture and/or upper crossed syndrome. This helps to strengthen our deep neck flexors and over time will allow us to hold our head and neck in a more neutral position. These can be added into your routine or even while seated at work or home. Try 3 sets of 10 twice a day. As always, if painful do not continue and/or call for a consult. Don't hurt yourself peeps!

This is a great stretch to open up the chest and shoulders. For those with upper crossed syndrome, this should be added to your daily exercises. There are 3 different hand positions (hands by head, above head, and below head) which will hit different areas of the chest and shoulders. Try doing these 3 times per day and hold each position for 20-30 seconds. As always, if painful do not continue and/or call for a consult. Don't hurt yourself peeps!
