Neck Pain Exercises-treat your own neck pain by using the best neck exercises and learn which are the worst for your neck.

A Neck Pain Exercise perfect for those who use computers a lot

Posted by in Neck Pain Essentials, Neck Pain exercises |

Here is a neck pain exercise which is one of my all time favourites. It is one of the best for those who spend long hours in front of the computer. It not only stretches the neck but also stretches out the lower back at the same time. Do this every hour or so. Remember also that if your job requires you to sit for a long time that even if your posture is excellent at all times you still need to take breaks.

Even a sitting posture that is considered perfect still loads the disc heavily due to gravity. Therefore to decompress the spine a little, get up, move around and do a couple of these stretches. It will also refresh your mind by taking a break

  • stand upright and put your right hand behind your back trying to touch your left buttock

 

  • Tilt your head to the left trying to touch your left ear to your left shoulder. keep your head straight( you may want to do this in front to a mirror first to see that you are doing it correctly)

 

  • slide your left hand down the side of your left leg

 

  • Do not lean forward or back and don’t let your head come forward.

 

  • If you want to enhance this stretch, cross your right foot over your left foot and gently push your hips to the right. this will stretch you from your lower back all the way to your neck

 

  • Remember, with all stretches you only want to feel a gentle stretch not ‘no pain, no gain’. Hold for 20 seconds.

 

  • Be careful as this is also an exercise in achieving good balance with your legs crossed over.

 

  • Enjoy!
