Maintaining neutral curvature

Stage 1: Maintain neutral curvature of your cervical spine

Congratulations on commencing stage 1!

Please answer the question on the sheet given by your headache clinician and bring that to your next treatment session.

Having a poor posture will make your treatment non-effective and will reduce the speed of your recovery.

The key note is to avoid slouching and poking your head forwards.

Follow the video and diagrams to know how to maintain a neutral posture.
