A stiff neck and tight shoulders are very well known issues for many of us. The good thing is that if this pain is caused by stress, bad sitting habits, or lack of activity, regular stretching can make a big difference and even give you permanent relief. The key word is regular. Consistency is the key for success.
We at Bright Side found a few very effective stretches that may help you with neck and shoulder pain.
1. Neck roll
This is a very gentle stretch used to release tension around your neck.
- Roll a towel;
- Place it at the base of your head;
- Let your head fall back toward the floor and relax.
- Stay in this position for about 10 minutes unless you feel any sort of pain.
