7 EFFECTIVE WAYS TO GET RID OF NECK PAIN

4. COBRA POSE

What to do:

  • Lie flat on your stomach, stretch your legs back, and place the tops of your feet on the floor.
  • Put your hands on the floor right under your shoulders.
  • Inhale and begin to lift your chest off the floor by straightening your arms. Press your tailbone toward the floor and curl your spine by slowly lowering your head backward until you feel a stretch.
  • Hold the position for about 15-30 seconds, then release back to the floor with an exhalation.

Results: Cobra pose will help you lengthen the front muscles of your neck and realign the shoulders in order to restore a natural curve in your spine.

5. THE CHIN TUCK EXERCISE

What to do:

  • Sit upright and place your fingers on your chin.
  • Keeping your eyes on the horizon, gently push your chin back toward your throat until you feel a stretch at the base of your head.
  • Hold the position for 5 seconds, then bring your chin forward again.
  • Repeat 10 times.

Results: The chin tuck exercise will help you align your head directly over the torso, relieve the compression in your spine, and reduce the tightness in your neck muscles.

6. THE CORNER STRETCH

What to do:

  • Face a corner of your room. Stand with your feet together about 2 feet away from the walls.
  • Put both forearms on the walls in front of you. Keep your elbows slightly below the height of your shoulders.
  • Lean toward the corner until you feel a stretch in your chest and shoulders.
  • Hold the pose for 30-60 seconds, then return to the initial position.

Results: The corner stretch will help you strengthen the muscles of your neck and counteract pain and discomfort in this area.
