Neck Side Bending Stretch Seated

  • Sit comfortably on a chair.
  • Grasp the bottom of the chair to stop your shoulder blade from moving up.
  • To stretch the left side of your neck, bring your right earlobe towards your right shoulder and vice versa
  • For maximum stretch, keep your eyes facing forward.
  • Once you feel a good stretch, reach across with your opposite arm and gently pull to increase the stretch.
  • Hold for the required time, then swap sides

Variation:

  • Do the same stretch lying on a hard surface.
  • This can help very sore muscles relax more.
