Tech Neck Exercises

With everyday use of techie gadgets we all end the day with a serious ‘crick’ in the neck!! Here’s my solution

Ex 1   Shoulder Shrugs

To mobilise your shoulders and release tension, sit or stand and simply shrug up both shoulders towards your ears. Now relax and simply drop your shoulders pushing down with your arms. Repeat 10 times.

Ex 2   Forward Neck stretch

To release neck tensions sit or stand upright.   Carefully bend your head forward, lengthen your neck and tuck in your chin until you feel a stretch at the back of your neck. Hold for 5 seconds and relax. Repeat 5 times.

Ex 3   Side Neck turns

To release neck tension sit or stand as before, looking straight ahead. Turn your head and look around to the right side as far as possible. Feel the stretch and hold for 5 seconds. Bring head back to look centre, and then turn head on and around to look left, and hold for 5 seconds.  Repeat turning and stretching both sides, 5 times.

Ex 4   Shoulder and Chest stretch

To stretch out tight chest muscles sit or stand, place hands behind your back on your bottom.  Carefully pull your neck in and back, pull shoulder blades together and back and stretch out your chest.  Hold for 5 secs and relax. Repeat 5 times.
