Chronic neck pain is one of the top complaints among computer users. In fact, many repetitive strain injuries stem from neck tension. Today we’re going to learn a short neck release that can be enormously useful in rotating the upper spine. This can help with common activities such as looking over your shoulder while you’re driving or just turning your head from side to side. In future episodes, we will learn ways to improve the other functions of the neck; flexion and extension (this is basically looking down and looking up) and lateral flexion (tilting your head to the side). When you are doing this lesson, please don’t do anything that hurts. Let the movement be as easy as possible by not using effort to achieve it. It doesn’t matter how far you go; what matters is the ease of the movement.
