neck pain relief with one simple stretch
Neck pain is awful! I sit a lot and end up with lower back aches, and neck tension. These lat (latissimus dorsi: the largest muscle in the back) stretches are very easy to do, and alleviated my neck pain in just one week. I do these stretches three times a day, and will continue to keep doing them because my lats are really tight.
These are the stretches that I’ve been doing. I gently, and slowly, move in and out of the stretch in all different directions.
The key is to keep the arm straight and pull gently; you should feel tension, but never pain.
