Many of us are still working from home and spending the majority of our day in front of screens. With all this extra computer time, many of our patients here at Rebalance Physical Therapy have been developing more head and neck pain, stiffness, or just overall posture starting to slump.
To counterbalance all this screen time, we’re sharing some stretches you can do to help balance out your muscles and help provide some relief from head and neck pain.
With any of these exercises or stretches, you should not be experiencing any pain. They should feel good—like you’re stretching and strengthening your muscles. If you experience discomfort or pain, sharp pain, or if these exercises make your symptoms worse, then you should stop immediately.
If these exercises are causing you pain, it may mean that there’s something more inflammatory going on that needs to be properly addressed by your physical therapist.
At Rebalance Physical Therapy, our clinicians have many years of experience treating orthopedic and spine conditions. We’ll take you through an evaluation, talk to you about what’s going on, perform some manual therapy techniques to release restrictions, and show you exercises to work on to help manage your pain. Our therapists will consider your unique needs to create a treatment plan that is customized to fit your lifestyle and goals. For more information or to make an appointment, please contact us today!
