This interesting app provides information and demonstrations of exercises to assist with cervical spondylosis. What makes the app “unique” is the graphical presentation which, for lack of a better description, reminds me of the graphics one would find on Super Nintendo.  Nevertheless, the app includes 3 stretching exercises, 7 active exercises, and 8 strengthening exercises for the cervical spine. These includes things like trapezius stretch, isometric lateral neck flexion, or chin tucks.  Each exercise has a “video” demonstration that consists of captions while the Super Nintendo-esque graphics demonstration the motion through a series of static images.  The app has no information about the author or developer, but all exercises seem relatively common and safe. Thus, the app may be useful for individuals searching for a quick reference to cervical spine exercises.
