Relieve your neck pain

Neck pain is a multi-factoral issue influenced by much more than the neck.

If the thoracic spine and ribcage do not move well, our neck has no base to move from.

You ALWAYS wanted to ensure your upper back is able to expand with air and compress or your neck will literally be shoved in front of your body!

Try these two upper back exercises FIRST before moving on to the last drill which restores direct neck movement.
