Prevent Neck Pain - Stretching & Mobility For Head & Neck (Self-Myofascial Release, Lacrosse Ball)

Prevent Neck Pain – Stretches & Mobility For Head & Neck

Ready to get rid of neck and shoulder pain? Here are some of my favorite stretches and mobility techniques (SMR – self-myofascial release) for releasing tension in your neck and shoulders, improving neck mobility, and preventing neck or head pain.

Part 1: Foam Rolling
Part 2: Lacrosse Ball
Part 3: Stretching

The goals of this routine are:

  • Reduce tension in your shoulders and neck
  • Prevent future neck pain and neck discomfort
  • Help to restore posture after sitting or inactivity
  • Learn where you are holding tension in your shoulders and neck to discover your problem areas. This will reveal which exercise you need to focus on.

This video routine is about 20 minutes, but once you learn the exercises and your specific problem areas, you will be able to get 80% of the benefits in about 5-10 minutes. It’s best to combine self-myofascial release with stretching -don’t do stretching and then self myofascial release.

This is part of an upcoming DVD I’m working on which will include other routines that focus on head and neck. The DVD won’t be out for some time, but we do have existing programs that focus on head, neck & shoulders, and also programs that teach self-myofascial release techniques like you’ll find in this one.
