Question from Roger in Washington D.C.
Roger works at a computer all day, suffers from headaches and chronic neck soreness. His wife has noticed a change in his posture. He suffers from pain and headaches that doctors attribute to a pinched nerve.
Watch the video to see how a stonger neck with some simple excercises using Cervifit can change Roger's life.
Ryan Hunter-Reay crossed the finish line before the pack in 2014. The training regiment that led to his championship run, focused on neck strengthening. With G-forces up to four times [normal weight] in an Indy car on turns, it definitely helped strengthen my neck," the champ added, that he'd used CerviFit to prepare the Indy season.

...with time, the body compensates by tightening some muscles and allowing others to loosen up.
Conclusion: "To protect and stabilize the head and neck in high Gz environments, higher neck muscle strength is needed; less muscle strength in FP-P may cause further pain and perhaps reduced mission effectiveness. Less localized steep slopes for HP-P might reflect impaired muscle functioning. Specific preventive and clinical attention may be warranted for different types of pilot."

"As the number of high school students participating in athletics continues to increase, so will the number of sports-related concussions unless effective concussion prevention programs are developed. We sought to develop and validate a cost-effective tool to measure neck strength in a high school setting, conduct a feasibility study to determine if the developed tool could be reliably applied by certified athletic trainers (ATs) in a high school setting, and conduct a pilot study to determine if anthropometric measurements captured by ATs can predict concussion risk."
