Neck Stretches & Physical Therapy Exercises For Neck Pain

 

If you’re suffering from neck pain, you know how debilitating it can be. You may be unable to do the activities that you enjoy or even complete basic tasks due to your pain. Physical therapy can help reduce your neck pain and increase your mobility and overall quality of life. At B Physical Therapy in Oviedo, we offer a variety of physical therapy exercises designed to relieve neck pain and improve mobility. Let’s explore some of these exercises below.


Stretching & Strengthening Exercises for Neck Pain

Stretching is one of the most effective ways to alleviate neck pain and improve mobility. Try performing these simple stretches on a regular basis for best results.

  • Side-to-side head tilt
    Slowly tilt your head in one direction, hold for 10 seconds, then tilt it in the other direction and hold for 10 seconds. Repeat this exercise five times on each side.
     
  • Chin tuck
    Begin by looking straight ahead with your shoulders relaxed and your chin parallel to the floor. Gently tuck your chin towards your chest and hold for 10 seconds, then relax back into the starting position. Repeat this exercise five times total.
     
  • Shoulder rolls
    Stand with feet shoulder width apart and arms relaxed at your sides. Roll both shoulders back while exhaling deeply, then roll them forward while inhaling deeply. Make sure not to put too much pressure on either shoulder while doing this exercise; just gently roll them forward and backward in one smooth motion 5-10 times per rotation (forward/backward).

In addition to stretching, strength training can also be very beneficial for treating neck pain as well as improving overall muscle strength and mobility in the area around your neck. Some great strengthening exercises include wall push-ups, standing rows using resistance bands or weights, rotational planks (rotating from side to side), bird dogs (standing on all fours), etc., all of which are available at B Physical Therapy in Oviedo FL!
