How To Stretch Your Neck
Neck stretches, when performed correctly and safely, are an excellent way to reduce tension in the neck region and the pain it causes. Some of the neck pain relief stretches our qualified and experienced health practitioners may recommend include:
- Behind the back neck stretch
- Seated clasping neck stretch
- Forwards and backwards tilt
- Grounded tipover tuck
- Seated heart opener
- Seated neck release
- Shoulder roll
Stretches like these can be performed at home and some you can even do at work while sitting at your desk. Taking the time to stretch your neck a few times can make a big difference to your day and your overall quality of life; however, stretching is no substitute for effective chiro and muscle therapy treatments delivered by a qualified practitioner.
Neck Pain And Headaches

Treatment for headaches usually involves treating the pain-sensitive structures in the upper neck (cervical), the back of the head (occipital) and the cervical spine joints, ligaments and muscles in the neck and shoulders.
The chiropractic and muscle therapy treatment methods our practitioners may provide in your neck pain treatment plan include spinal adjustments, dry needling, trigger point therapy and myofascial release.
