On this page, our Physiotherapists at Pure have worked collaboratively to compile a series of exercise rehabilitation plans which we recommend performing at home for help with your recovery.
The exercises are categorised in to different stages based on the current symptoms you are experiencing and the level of progress you have made in your recovery and rehabilitation journey.
The early exercises focus on maintaining range of motion and reducing levels of discomfort in the neck so that you can stay functional. Progressing through to intermediate, the emphasis shifts more towards achieving full range of motion with external assistance, alongside beginning to activate the upper back and neck muscles. Finally, the advanced programme is designed to strengthen the neck extensor, upper back and shoulder muscles – all of which can play a role in the recovery from neck pain, making the areas more resilient.

Please click here to be re-directed to our YouTube channel playlist for video demonstrations of each exercise recommended for neck pain. Ensure you pay attention to the specific level of the exercises you have been prescribed (early, intermediate or advanced) and view only those videos so that you perform the correct exercises.
Although these exercises are recommended by us, we advise that you liaise with your Physiotherapist before attempting any exercises you have not been recommended.
If you experience continual worsening of pain/symptoms whilst performing any prescribed exercises, we recommended that you stop and contact your Physiotherapist.
