Neck exercises, neck pain

Overview *

Exercising your neck can make it stronger, more flexible and reduce neck pain that is caused by stress and fatigue. The most common causes of neck pain are poor body posture, unhealthy movement, and arthritis of the neck. The neck is healthy when the ears, shoulders and hips are aligned. If your posture is not good, neck and back pain may result.

Exercising the neck muscles has three benefits:
- It strengthens the muscles of the neck, upper back, and shoulders.
- It makes the neck more flexible, increasing its range of motion.
- It relaxes the neck and reduces pain.

The following are the typical steps in a stretching exercise:
- Move slowly to the point where you feel a mild tension in the muscle.
- Hold the position for 5 seconds.
- Return slowly to the original position.
- Relax for 2 seconds.
- Repeat the above 5 times.
