To complete this screen, touch your chin to your chest, then look up as high as you can, and then touch your chin to both shoulders. It’s ok if you cannot achieve the full range of motion. The goal is to assess for a significantly limited range of motion, or any pain, numbness, or radiating discomfort during the movements.
