Physical Therapy for Neck Pain Relief

Hi, I'm Doctor Jo, a licensed Physical Therapist and Doctor of Physical Therapy. I hope you enjoy my video demos of stretches & exercises for common injuries and syndromes. Be safe. Have fun. And I hope you feel better soon.

Physical therapy for neck pain can help relieve pain from a wide variety of neck issues including bad posture. These neck stretches & exercises can help with general neck pain and neck tightness.

First up we have chin tucks. Chin tucks are my favorite exercise and/or stretch for the neck. It does a great job of “resetting” the neck muscles, and stopping forward head posture.

Isometric exercises can also be very beneficial, especially when you are having a lot of neck pain and big movements increase the pain. Isometric exercises activate or contract the muscles without moving the muscles.

The final two stretches are not only great for neck pain, but they can also help with shoulder and upper back pain as well. The upper trapezius and levator scapulae muscles cover the neck, upper back, and shoulder area, so they can cause a lot of neck pain, shoulder pain, and upper back pain when they are tight.
