Moving Beyond an Injury
Strengthening the Neck and Enhancing Brain Health with the Iron Neck
Neck strength and stability play a crucial role in maintaining overall health, particularly for those who have experienced a motor vehicle accident or are involved in high-risk sports. Dr. Stephanie Barbakoff, a chiropractic neurologist and co-owner of Oculus Brain Centers, shares her expertise on how she uses the Iron Neck in her practice to help patients recover and build resilience.
Although the Iron Neck might appear to be an intimidating piece of equipment, Dr. Barbakoff reassures her patients that it is comfortable and easy to use. She often demonstrates how to use the Iron Neck, emphasizing that there is no "cute" way to wear it, but its effectiveness outweighs any concerns about appearance. Dr. Barbakoff highlights that many motor vehicle accident patients suffer from concussions without even hitting their head. The whiplash from the accident can cause shearing forces on the brain and brain stem, leading to a concussion. The Iron Neck helps retrain the head and eyes in various planes of motion, which is critical for recovery.
The Iron Neck is an essential tool in Dr. Barbakoff's practice, as it effectively integrates the vestibular, ocular, and proprioceptive systems. By working with these systems simultaneously, the Iron Neck provides a comprehensive approach to strengthening the neck and enhancing brain health. Dr. Barbakoff strongly recommends the Iron Neck to patients who participate in high-risk activities, such as motor sports or contact sports. She believes that there is no other device on the market that can compete with the Iron Neck's ability to build neck resistance safely and effectively. Investing in an Iron Neck for home use can be a valuable addition to an individual's ongoing health and wellness regimen.
The Iron Neck is an invaluable tool for those looking to strengthen their neck, improve brain health, and reduce the risk of injury. As a chiropractic neurologist, Dr. Stephanie Barbakoff has witnessed firsthand the benefits of incorporating the Iron Neck into her practice and encourages those in high-risk environments to consider adding it to their arsenal of health and wellness tools.
