Do you sit at a computer to work, or stare down at your phone for extended periods? Watch Dr. Greg Sher demonstrate how you can stretch your neck to counter these activities. 

What does this exercise achieve?

Not only do these exercises make you more aware of your posture, they also have a positive effect on your flexibility. After all, finding ways to help keep your posture healthy will only  decrease the likelihood of neck pain and tension in the future.

The big tip:

Obviously, regular movement is going to be the best safeguard from postural strain, but if you cant stand up and leave your desk, these neck stretches are a great substitute to help move your neck and decrease tension. Try do them 2-3 times per day at your desk, using a regular routine.
