Sleeping in an uncomfortable position or even just one wrong move can leave you with nagging neck pain. These four moves will help you release the kink in your neck…
POPSUGAR has a few instructions on how to do a seated neck release exercise to strectch your neck.
- Sit on the floor in a cross-legged position or in a chair with your feet flat on the ground.
- Extend your right arm next to your right knee or along the right side of the chair. Place your left hand on the top of your head and slowly tilt your head to the left. Apply gentle pressure with your hand to increase the stretch.
- To feel a deeper stretch, you can hold onto your right knee or the seat of the chair. This stabilises the torso and allows you to isolate the stretch on the side of your neck.
- Hold on this side for 30 seconds, then slowly lift your head up and repeat this stretch on the other side.
