3 Great Stretches for Fast Neck Pain Relief

While your spine runs through your neck as well as your back, herniated discs are rarely the cause of neck pain. Far more often it’s caused by muscle imbalances in the upper back and neck and myofascial trigger points.

    Great info! You are so right about muscle imbalances. These stretches will help. After 20 years in practice I have found that spinal misalignments are perhaps more common as causing neck pain. Car accidents, poor posture, too big or flat a pillow,and stomach sleepers are the most common causes of neck problems. A good Chiropractor can help tremendously.

    I recently graduated from ASMT, one of the best schools in the country, where I learned many varied modalities, including Eastern, Russian, Trigger Point, Structural, & Sports massage/stretching. I found the sports & structural modalities to be very beneficial to my clinical clients from school and have received very good feedback from them. Just from watching your 1-2 minute videos on neck exercises & sciatica stretches helped me to learn more indepth ways to stretch my clients with what I already know. In structural, we learned about tensegrity of the body & how muscles affect bones & how they together can affect organs, systems….the whole body. I also have an inversion system at home, but am afraid to use it too often b/c I have HBP and don’t want to increase it. Don’t know if it will make something in my head pop. I already had a mild stroke beginning of Jan 04, so am very cautious when doing things to myself. I have a myriad of health problems, but am trying to get thru them with as few drugs as possible right now & eventually get totally off them. It will be quite an accomplishment if & when I can do it. I don’t have a job right now but will be looking for one as soon as I return from my oncology classes this weekend. I want to help as many people in pain as much as possible. If you can think of any ways
    for me to accomplish this, I’d appreciate it.

    I tried these stretches after a couple days of my neck bothering me and it relieved it tremendously. I’ve asked other chiropractors and researched some on the internet and I found that neck pain may also be caused by deficiencies in vitamins and supplements such as fish oil! I suggest this to anyone looking for more information!

    Don’t forget to stretch your mid back and chest to also decrease neck tightness.
