The Neck | Neck Pain and Headaches in Runners | Episode 7 | The Runners Series

Headaches, neck pain, heck even shooting pain down the arm can all be the result of poor running mechanics and neck position when you’re out there pounding the pavement. It all starts with getting your neck into neutral – stacked where it needs to be. Now, if you’re someone with a wicked anterior pelvic tilt, you’re going to be FORCED into a forward had position and are probably a low back pain sufferer as well! Be cognoscente of your entire kinetic chain and position during movement.

Featuring Mitch Starkman, Physiotherapist
