We all know how it feels to have neck pain. It can be very painful, limit us in movement and cause headache or upper back pain.
In a time where computers and phones are becoming more and more important, we spend so much time staring at our devices, without being aware until we feel the pain.
Did you know that our head weighs around 4,5kg (10 pounds)? Now imagine having your head tilt forward for hours and hours, whilst using your phone, sitting at the desk, reading a book. Do you think that is healthy?
I have put a few neck stretching exercises together, which should help to reduce neck discomfort. Make sure you repeat these exercises regularly and take a few breaks at work where you are not starring at a screen.
