This SMR exercise more deeply addresses the sternocleidomastoid (SCM), one of the many muscles that runs along the side of your neck and is attached to your sternum & clavicle, and also addresses the scalene muscles underneath the SCM. Practice this SMR exercise AFTER the Neck Roll and the Sterno Roll, and in compliment with the Neck Press.
If you find your tight muscles are not relieved with the roller techniques then SLOWLY practice this deeper ball technique.
You will notice a number of issues that this technique influences.
The most important issue this technique can influence is poor neck posture.
If you can't easily turn or tilt your head then this exercise is for you!
The Neck Press technique is a natural compliment to this SMR exercise, so do them together.
