Neck pain is often caused by tight neck muscles. Here are some of my favorite neck stretches to help relieve neck pain.

People often ask about warming up muscles before exercising or stretching. This is a good idea to get the muscles loose and warm before your workout. When you can’t do a cardio movement to warm up the muscles, you can use a heat wrap for 10-15 minutes before you start. You can also use a cold wrap or ice afterwards to calm the inflammation back down. BioMed DB Design, LLC makes a great neck heating wrap that can do both.

The first three neck pain stretches are for you upper traps, your levator scap, and your anterior scalene muscles. The muscles can get really tight when you are working at a computer or gaming for long periods.

Next, chin tucks are a great exercise and neck stretch. They not only work the muscles around your neck, but they also “reset” them when you have bad posture.

The final neck stretch is called SNAGs. By using a towel to help “hold” segments of your vertebrae, you can get a great stretch at specific levels of your cervical spine.
