Quick Tip: Want a four-in-one neck stretch?

Posted by on Jun 27, 2017 in Exercises, Health and Wellness, Psoas Deskinetics, Stretches

Do you find that it's hard to look over your shoulder in  traffic (whether driving or cycling) because your neck is stiff? Or have you snaked a wave on your surfboard when you couldn't rotate your neck to check behind you? Tension in our necks can hinder all sorts of important functions, but this week's Quick Tip — an Active Isolated Stretching series — can be a huge help. Check it out as one way to address regular neck stiffness, to combat the headaches and jaw pain neck tension can cause, and to just generally increase your range of motion.

Since this series targets sensitive areas, it's extra important to give yourself a refresher on Active Isolated Stretching. Watch our explanatory video if you haven't in a while. Otherwise, just remember the goal is to do 10 -12 passes for each side, not too far and not too fast. And when using the help of your hand, don't forget to engage the muscles of your neck to help you along. 

And, as usual, we're here if you have any questions. We'll be closed on July 4th, but open for regular hours this holiday weekend. Give us a call or come on by!
