Move It or Fuse It
My neck is always one of the first things to go with a flare. I’ve lost curvature and my hump is starting to show so I work really hard to keep as much range of motion as possible. One of my strengthening workouts had some moves that involved the neck and I was shocked to find I could barely do them. Up till then I guess I never really thought about strengthening my neck because I’ve always been more concerned with my back. Once I started working more on it I noticed that the pain decreased and while I struggle for full range of motion I’ve got more than most so I’m not complaining.
