NECK X® Development & History

NeckX® Development & History

NECK X® was developed initially as a solution to the constant pain and fatigue experienced by US fighter Pilots. Due to the high G forces they experience flying their high performance fighter aircraft; fighter pilots are constantly battling to maintain their neck flexibility and range of motion. Because there is only one winner in air-to-air combat, it is necessary for fighter pilots to be able to turn their heads under extreme conditions to maintain sight of their threats. The developers of NECK X® sought out a simple, inexpensive, easy to use solution to this problem and to give US fighter pilots a competitive edge.

During the development of NECK X®, we discovered that NECK X® is not only useful for fighter pilots, but can apply to many other people as well. Whether a person is a professional athlete, a sports enthusiast, a stay at home parent, or one who works many hours in front of a computer, NECK X® can help increase neck strength and neck flexibility. NECK X® is a great tool to aid in recovering from neck pain and neck injuries and is a great way to reduce neck tension and improve neck range of motion.

There are seven identified exercises that are initially suggested for use with the NECK X®: Neck Extension, Neck Flexion, Rotation, Side Bend (Flexion), 45°s (Combination Neck Extension/Rotation), Chin Tuck, and Vertical Lift. These exercises can be done using Concentric, Eccentric, or Isometric exercise methods. The NECK X® is designed to stretch and strengthen the muscles most commonly related to neck strain, neck stiffness, and neck pain. These muscles groups include, but are not limited to, the Levator Scapulae, Rhomboid, Sternocleidomastoid, Trapezius, Splenius, Semispinalis, and Multifidus muscles.

Perhaps the greatest benefit of using the NECK X® is the ability to fixate or easily target a specific neck muscle group. By making very small adjustments to the placement of the resistance bands while using the NECK X®, the user can target their problem areas. Furthermore, the NECK X® allows the user to maintain a Neutral Spine Position throughout each neck exercise and maintain a properly aligned spine. Because of the unique, patented design of the NECK X®, a user can effectively stretch and strengthen their neck, increase their neck flexibility, and improve their neck range of motion.

Currently, NECK X® is used by several Collegiate Athletic Departments, Chiropractors, Spine / Orthopedic Surgeons, Professional Athletes, Olympic Training Centers, and individual users worldwide. Since NECK X® incorporates and improves the ability to perform many of the neck exercises already prescribed, we are confident that you will experience immediate, positive results.
