A Neck Exercise for computer operators

Posted by in Neck Pain Essentials |

Here is a great neck  exercise to help you if you have to work at the computer. Obviously, as we have spoken about before  you will need to maintain proper posture at all times but this will also be a wonderful adjunct. As matter of fact, you can do this anytime not just when you have been at the computer. It feels great!

  • 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!
