Stand in front of the mirror and check how much movement the cervical spine can perform, how free they are:

  • Tilt your head forward, trying to reach your chin to the surface of your chest. If difficulties arise with this movement, this means that there are restrictions on the flexion of the cervical spine.

  • Turn your head to the right and then to the left so that the tip of the nose is in line with the shoulder. If movement is difficult, then there is a limitation of rotation in the cervical spine.
  • Looking at your reflection in the mirror, use your index finger to determine the level of the tip of the nose and hold your finger at this point. After that, throw your head back, look at the ceiling. If your chin reaches or exceeds the level of your finger, then with the extension of the cervical spine, you are in perfect order.
