Physical Therapy Stretches for the Neck : Scalene Muscle Stretch for Neck Physical Therapy


Hi, I’m Monica and we are going to show you
one last stretch for your neck. This again is another stretch for the anterior muscles
of your neck. These muscles, called your scalenes, are a little bit deeper than the SCM that
we just talked about, but sometimes they do become really tense or after whip lash injury
these muscles can be injured as well. And what you want to do to get them is you are
going to want going to want to tilt your head back and off to the side just a little bit
here. You also want to make sure that you are holding on to the chair and keeping your
shoulder anchored so you should feel it in through here. It is different from the SCM
stretch because that one you are going to be feeling more right here. So right the front
part of the neck. Come back up to get the left hand side and tilt just a little bit
come on back keeping your shoulder down while holding to the edge of the chair and you should
feel it right in here.
