Ann Arbor, MI - Many people will describe neck pain from "sleeping wrong on their neck." Many times this produces a sensation of the neck being "locked" or very painful and limited to one side. A simple solution that often can be done on your own is slack some of the neck tissue on the same side you are experiencing limited motion. Often times you will then notice an increase in your range of motion. Repeat this often throughout the day. Note: This exercise should not be performed if you are experiencing numbness or tingling into your hands. This often is a much more significant issue that should be addressed by a trusted health professional. As always if you fee increased pain or discomfort stop the exercise and again, consult with a healthcare provider.
