More exercises to relieve neck pain

Yesterday we looked at two simple exercises to help relieve neck pain when using your Office Chair.

Remember, if you already have a neck condition, or you experience any serious pain or discomfort do not attempt or continue with the exercises.

If you have had a particularly heavy day in your Office Seat typing, inputting data or surfing the net, it’s likely that your neck could be feeling some after effects. Here’s another exercise my Physio recommended that works well for me.

In the evening when you have had a bath or showered and feeling relaxed, lie down on the floor on your back with your feet drawn up so that your knees are facing upwards. Keep your arms at your side and the back of your head laying flat on the floor. Try pulling your chin down towards your chest a little to align your neck.

Lie in this position for about 5 minutes or a little longer if you are comfortable. By doing this exercise you will bring your neck back into alignment after all the straining you did in your chair.

It’s also a good idea to have a neck and shoulder massage from a qualified Physio or Chiropractor. I find this very useful to relieve the tension in my neck muscles and to help free things up.

A lot of people tend to move their head rapidly from side to side in an attempt to relieve neck ache. This is not a good idea and can actually be harmful to your neck.

And remember if you find you are suffering any serious pain or discomfort when doing this exercise then stop immediately.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
