The seated clasping neck extension stretch is a great stretch if you are suffering from neck pain, shoulder tension or a headache. This stretch involves stretching out the upper part of your spine which often provides relief for all three conditions.
Individuals who have forward head posture or who crank their head forward while reading or using the computer for long periods during the day are likely to benefit from this stretch.
This is an easy stretch to incorporate into your daily routine as you can perform this stretch at your desk, in the car or at home. 5 minutes per day and you will feel a lot of relief.
This stretch is much more effective if you start with a hot shower to relax the muscles first. The following video demonstrates the seated clasping neck extension stretch.
