Cautions: Move your head very gently, as directed, but only as far as if you're comfortable. Do not strain your neck. These exercises should not be done by those with very high or very low blood pressure, or with extreme cervical spondylosis. Those with cervical spondylosis should avoid bending their neck forward.
