Lowering Risk

It is well known that weaker necks cannot mitigate  accelerations to the head, as well as athletes with stronger necks. This is substantiated in a research study in the Journal of Primary Prevention, Neck strength: a protective factor reducing risk for concussion in high school sports., found
“For every one pound increase in neck strength, odds of concussion decreased by 5 % (OR = 0.95, 95% CI 0.92-0.98). We conclude that identifying differences in overall neck strength may be useful in developing a screening tool to determine which high school athletes are at higher risk of concussion.”

As a coach, parent and athlete make sure neck training is an important and inclusive part of the preparation for sport. Not only will training the neck make an athlete better, but it will lower the risk of serious injury. Get the neck Strong.
