Prone Cobra: Poor posture can cause your shoulders to roll forward, forcing you to hunch your shoulders. The Prone Cobra helps get your torso and shoulders back into better alignment.
Wall Angel: This exercise can help get your torso and shoulders back into better alignment by positioning your back, shoulders, heels, hips and head against the wall.
Supported Neck Traction: This forward head posture can create a lot of stress on your neck and may cause a loss of the curve in your neck. This exercise helps restore that natural curve and helps you carry your head directly over your shoulders.
Remember to perform all these stretches and exercises as advised by your chiropractor.
