This video is part 1 of 10 in the "Climb Injury-Free" video series. Watch the clip to learn how to correct the most common climbing and belaying movements that can cause a neck strain.
The neck is made up of flexor muscles in the front and extensor muscles in the back. When you look up at your partner while belaying or climbing, your neck extensors are constantly overworking. Over time, these muscles get strong and stiff while the neck flexors become weak, creating an imbalance. This imbalance can also lead to compression of the joints in your neck.
