You’re here to heal your neck in order to get rid of your headaches, right?
Well, aerobic exercise is vital for tissue healing.
But, it has to be neck-friendly.
At least for now.
For the first few weeks in your healing program, your aerobic exercise should keep you in an upright position, face forward, with your head balanced on a comfortably upright aligned neck.
Not with your head hanging out in space, which makes neck muscles work overtime.
And not with your neck bent around like a human pretzel.
Ixnay to activities that jar your head on your neck!
Those are the rules of thumb.
Just while you heal.
