"As the number of high school students participating in athletics continues to increase, so will the number of sports-related concussions unless effective concussion prevention programs are developed. We sought to develop and validate a cost-effective tool to measure neck strength in a high school setting, conduct a feasibility study to determine if the developed tool could be reliably applied by certified athletic trainers (ATs) in a high school setting, and conduct a pilot study to determine if anthropometric measurements captured by ATs can predict concussion risk."

More to the Neck than Meets the Eye

The neck is made up of symetrical muscle pairs on either side of the head and chin, stretching from the Sternocleidomastoid, that runs down the chest and attaches to the clavicle providing rotational stability on a sheering axis, to the Trapezius pairing that runs down the back of the neck to the shoulder blades.


Together, all of the neck musculature works not only to keep the head securely on the shoulders but as a shock absober for impact at any angle.


Stability, introduced by strengthened neck musculature, protects the fragile super highway of the cervical spine tasked with carrying fast flowing electic pulse relays to and from the brain improving "hand-eye" response intervals and reducing risk to the upper spine at the same time.


This same shock absorbtion enables a player to brace against impact and reduce the 'whiplash' effect of a sheering hit that leads directly to concussion.

Simple to Train, Why Ignore it!


CerviFit is designed for ease of use and safety.  No spotter requried, no bulky chains or tethers.  No dangerous tugging and inaccurate weight distribution.


Amazing what adding 5 minutes of neck conditioning to a player's daily routine can hold as a longer term benefit of health and improved performance as well as general fitnes.  Neck strength naturally corrects posture defects as well.  The type of defects that lead to long term symptoms, degenterative disc issues, sciatica, lower back misalignment...defects that plaugue 60% of the otherwise healthy populous.
