Neck Stretch

Neck Stretch is a simple yet vital exercise for maintaining and increasing the flexibility of your neck muscles. This gentle stretch relieves tension and tightness, improves posture, and is an excellent way to combat the strain from desk work or prolonged periods of looking at screens. It can be done seated or standing, and only requires a few seconds to make a noticeable difference.
