How many hours have you been sitting at your computer today? That pain in your neck isn’t going to get better on its own. Maybe you learned some tricks in physical therapy, but you haven’t done them in months and you don’t want to go back to physical therapy again. Neck tension is often caused by the position of our arms and shoulders. When shoulders are rounded for several hours per day instead of occasionally being drawn back into the joint, neck pain will manifest. Try these shoulder openers to relieve your neck pain. I suggest doing these poses more than once a day but the good news is that you don’t have to travel far from your work station to do them. The second pose requires a yoga strap, which is an excellent prop to have on hand because of its versatility.
