Stretches Your Neck
Jeremy graduated from Midwestern State University in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology with the intention of pursuing a career in physical therapy. His interest in physical therapy began while in college as he learned to appreciate that movement is medicine. Jeremy started his career as a
Levator Scapulae Stretch (Overpressure)
Sit in a chair with the hand on the side of the neck to be stretched beneath you. (Alternatively, you can grab under the chair.) Use your free hand to gently pull your nose down toward your armpit so as to give your neck an extra stretch. Hold for 5-10 seconds before relaxing the muscle for another 5-10 seconds. Repeat 2-3 times. Good stretch to use if you sit at a computer all day.

Patient Success Spotlight
"When I first arrived at Foundation Therapy, I had low back pain that was non-stop all day/night. I was not able to sleep through the night, which was increasing the pain due to lack of rest. Shortly after starting therapy, I had periods of no pain, which allowed me
to start identifying stressors that were contributing to the pain. The combination of therapy strategy ultimately loosened my neck, chest and back and improved posture supporting muscle strength. I am now sleeping through the night and handling stress better. – T. B.
