Neck exercises for tinnitus

As committed physical therapists devoted to enhancing our patient’s health, we recognize the profound effect tinnitus can have on daily living.

Introducing tailored head and neck exercises into your regimen can mitigate symptoms and boost overall well-being. In this blog post, we delve into several exercises aimed at addressing neck discomfort and fostering relief.

Neck Exercises for Tinnitus Relief:

Integrating head and neck exercises into your daily regimen may aid in relieving tinnitus-related discomfort. Like any exercise regimen, it’s crucial to begin gradually and heed your body’s signals. If you encounter any discomfort or pain, cease the exercise and seek guidance from a healthcare professional.

  1. Chin tuck stretch: 
    • To perform a chin tuck stretch, sit or stand with good posture. Gently tuck your chin towards your chest, creating a double chin appearance. Hold this position for 15-30 seconds, feeling a stretch at the base of the skull and the back of the neck. Relax and repeat several times, aiming to alleviate tension and improve flexibility in the neck muscles.
  2. Neck Rotation Stretch:
    • To do a neck rotation stretch, sit or stand tall with shoulders relaxed. Slowly turn your head to one side, bringing your chin over your shoulder until you feel a gentle stretch in the neck. Hold for 15-30 seconds, focusing on relaxation. Return to the center and repeat on the other side. Avoid jerky movements and stretch within your comfort zone to alleviate tension and improve neck mobility.
  3. Deep cervical flexor strengthening:
    • To strengthen the deep cervical flexors, lie on your back with knees bent. Gently tuck your chin, creating a double chin. Hold this position while pressing the back of your head into the floor for 5-10 seconds. Relax and repeat 10-15 times, aiming to engage the muscles at the front of your neck. Gradually increase hold time and repetitions as tolerated, focusing on maintaining proper form and breathing throughout the exercise. Strengthening these muscles can help alleviate neck pain and improve posture.

If you find no relief from these exercises, here’s the reason why.

In numerous instances, standard neck stretches and gentle strengthening may not suffice to yield significant results.

However, this doesn’t imply that improvement is unattainable; rather, a personalized approach may be necessary.
