General Advice

Avoid any quick sudden neck movements.
Sleep on your back or side, preferably on the non affected side.
Avoid sleeping on your stomach. Keep your neck straight by shaping the pillow to support your neck.
Do not sit in bed with straight legs. Rather sit at a table or over the edge of the bed when reading/eating.
Avoid moving (pulling/shifting/lifting etc.) heavy objects for at least 6 weeks.
Avoid activities above your head.  

Remember that the stretches and exercises must not cause any pain! If any of the stretches ór exercises cause any pain, reduce the intensity. If it still causes pain, stop immediately and contact your therapist.


Enjoy your workout!
