Knock out neck stiffness: Day 1 of the 7 Joints in 7 Days video series
This article is part of the mini-series 7 Joints in 7 Days: A video mini-course to help you knock out joint stiffness in less than 10 minutes a day.
Do you deal with a stiff or aching neck? Stretching may help, but stretches designed for muscles instead of the underlying joint might not hit the right spots.
Neck stiffness is common in people diagnosed with arthritis, as well as those who do a lot of static (non-moving) activity. Extensive computer work, and working while bent forward or with arms overhead can contribute to neck stiffness.
Stiffness is also familiar to people who have suffered a head injury. Many people experience a gradual onset of neck stiffness in the months or years following a car accident (whiplash), a fall or blow to the head, or after a traumatic brain injury.
If you’ve tried other flexibility exercises without luck, giving some attention to the joints in your neck may do the trick. Joint mobility exercises lubricate and increase blood flow, and can help you alleviate stiffness in under 10 minutes a day.
Check out the video below from our 7 Joints in 7 Days video mini-course. Try the Bobblehead exercises daily for at least ten days and see if you notice less neck stiffness.
If the exercises cause pain, or if your neck stiffness seemed related in time with other symptoms such as fever or illness, seek the advice of a qualified healthcare professional.
