Neck Exercises

The following exercises form part of an introduction to injury prevention strategies. The exercises in this section are only to be performed if you are fit and well and not suffering from any injury or illness. If you encounter any pain or problems while doing the exercises then stop and report to your club or academy physiotherapist or seek medical advice. 

All the exercises can be performed as part of your warm up routine before training or a match. See the accompanying videos for a demonstration of each exercise.

  • It is important to have sufficient strength and coordination in the muscles around the neck
  • Supervision is required to teach and perform the neck exercises correctly. For more information on this contact a health professional
