EXERCISES

2 x 2

It’s vital for your neck and spinal health to maintain proper neck mobility.

Be sure to do these movements in order described and take your mobility to the very end range.

Overheads

This is helpful for neck and shoulder rehabilitation and for preventing frozen shoulder syndrome. It is also useful for improving lung function and chest expansion.

Be sure and keep proper head posture as you do these.

Hand Grips

This exercise can help resolve the primary deficit involved in carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis and golfer’s elbow.

Adjustable handgrips work best so you can set them to your current ability. Having several sets and putting them where you commonly are in the most efficient way to ensure that you do them often enough.

Wall Push Up

This is helpful for improving shoulder stability and toning your triceps.

Having good extensor strength provides a stable base for your flexor muscles to work.

THINGS TO AVOID

Part of getting better is not only doing the right things but avoiding those that slow recovery. With arm and shoulder pain caused by neck problems, the biggest issue is often postural stress. With that in mind, I recommend that you do your best to avoid or modify anything that tends to cause you to have forward head posture. These are things like;

  • Reading in bed
  • Texting with your head down
  • Sleeping on your back
  • Having your computer monitor too low

You also want to avoid immobility as your joints will stiffen and slow recovery.

And finally, I understand the occasional need for drugs when the pain is especially severe but avoid muscle relaxants as they tend to make you vulnerable to further injury.
