Do Some Neck Gliding Exercises.

Maintain a level chin by keeping your head straight. Then, in a smooth motion, pull your neck back. Hold the stretch for a few seconds before relaxing.

Extend Your Neck on Both Sides.

Twist your right arm behind your back and place it there. Carry your left ear to your left shoulder while keeping your eyes straight up. Apply steady pressure to the stretch with your left hand. Put your hand on your head and enable the stretch to be aided by the load of your arm. Keep for 20-30 seconds, then switch sides and repeat.

Rotate Your Neck During the Day.

When you're using a gadget, do this exercise for 20 minutes every day, then rest for 1 hour. Look to your left, then to your right, maintaining your chin level. Repeat on each side 10 times.

Stretch Your Shoulders in a Swift Motion.

Keep the pose for 5 seconds before releasing it. Turn your shoulders up to your ears. Repeat 5–10 times. Flip your shoulders forward 5-10 times in a clockwise direction, then reverse 5-10 times.

Perform Back Stretches for Pain Relief

  1. Stretch the corners of your body
  2. Do a push-up against a wall.
  3. Extend your thoracic spine in a thoracic extension stretch.
  4. Rotate your body externally.
