Whiplash Rehab: Simplified with NecksLevel

3 Neck Stretching & Strengthening Exercises for Whiplash Neck Pain Relief

1. Stretch Left & Right

STRETCH MODE: No resistance band

Difficulty with head turns left and right is common after whiplash injury. This rotation stretch helps unwind neck stiffness and improves side-to-side neck motion.

2. Strengthen Up & Down

STRENGTH MODE: Yellow (Level 1)

This motion is commonly overlooked following whiplash. The chin tuck motion strengthens the deep neck flexors - an important muscle group for good posture & pain relief.

3. Strengthen Left & Right

STRENGTH MODE: Yellow (Level 1)

Whiplash injuries cause neck weakness and muscle atrophy. Reverse these effects & prevent future injury by strengthening the rotation muscles like you see here.
