From whiplash injury to sitting at a computer all day, neck pain can be caused by several factors. Contact us at Nault Chiropractic to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stephen Nault, a board certified chiropractor who specializes in muscular and skeletal issues.
Although we offer the latest in chiropractic and pain management techniques at Nault Chiropractic, there are also four simple neck exercises you can do at home to curb your pain.
Neck stretches in 6 directions
Sit on a chair that offers good support, and reach down to hold the seat portions of the chair as you stretch. Do not bounce or jerk your head or neck while performing these exercises, and only stretch as far as your body will allow in order to avoid injury:
While stretching, hold each direction from 10-15 seconds. Hold the stretch for longer if you experience pain or stiffness.
Lower Neck/Upper Back Stretch
Stretch 4: Spinal Twist
Doing these simple exercises for just a few minutes daily can help manage your neck pain and benefit the other muscle groups surrounding the neck as well.
