Yoga Stretches for a Stiff Neck – Video
My own neck has been sore lately, so I checked out Youtube for some videos that might be helpful.
This video gives some great simple stretches for the neck. I’ve done this little routine for a couple days now and it’s making a difference.
As always, I would highly recommend checking with your doctor before trying any of these exercises. That’s my disclaimer.
Just a couple minutes of this stretching can definitely loosen up some tight neck muscles.
The very first movement is great for the shoulders. Shoulder stiffness is often tied into neck pain.
The next movement is just moving the head from left to right while focusing on the breathing.
Never move past the point of pain, the idea is to relax and loosen, not create more pain.
I was talking to my friend just the other day and he recommended I try some neck stretches.
Here is what he said:
“If it’s hard for you to do the stretches, try hooking up an Interferential unit, with the electrodes on your neck. The interferential treatment will help to loosen up the muscles and make it easier to stretch, with less discomfort.”
So I tried it out and guess what, it works great. If you want to try this for yourself, you’ll need a doctor’s prescription. The good folks at Medfaxx can help you with that. They will even give you a free trial of the unit. Definitely worth a try, if you are suffering with pain of any type. To get started on your free trial, just fill out the from on the right hand side of this site.
