Neck pain can be helped with stretches, exercises, and other treatments. These neck exercises & stretches are easy to do, and should help provide neck pain relief. 

To help relieve neck pain and tightness, stretches should help loosen up the area. Neck rotation with thoracic rotation in the opposite direction, upper trap stretch, and levator scap stretch are all great ways to help relieve neck pain.

You can also use a TENS unit while you are stretching and exercising to help decrease the pain so you can do the treatment you need to get better. The folks at Auvon, Inc. sent me their 3-in-1 TENS, EMS, and massage unit to use.

Then you can do a neck rotation stretch with a towel. Some therapists will call these SNAGS.

Finally, strengthening the neck or cervical muscles will help keep it strong and stable. Chin tucks and chin tucks with flexion to get the deep flexor muscles will help.

10 Best Golfer's Elbow Exercises & Stretches

Buy the Golfer's Elbow WorksheetGolfer's elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is an inflammation on the inside of the elbow. It often comes from an overuse injury. This video shows you my favorite stretches & exercises for golfer's elbow.

Soft tissue mobilization (STM) can be very beneficial for golfer’s elbow. This is not rubbing the area, but you are actually mobilizing or moving the tissue around to help break up adhesions and scar tissue.

Next stretching the inside and outside of the elbow helps. Wrist flexor stretches and wrist extensor stretches will help loosen up the area. Stretches in general can be done with a 30 second hold, 3 times.

Then working on AROM and strengthening for wrist flexion, radial/ulnar deviation, and pronation/supination will help decrease the inflammation and improve motion.

Finally bicep curls are a great way to strengthen the muscles as well.

In addition to showing you how to use a TENS/EMS unit and how to properly place the electrodes, it includes some simple stretches and exercises that can be done in conjunction with the TENS unit to get the best possible results long-term.
