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. Good stretch to use if you sit at a computer all day.

MY PT SUCCESS STORY
I went to Muscle & Spine Rehabilitation Center for my chronic neck pain and had the pleasure of working with Ben and Teri. Almost immediately, I noticed some improvement in my neck which continued to improve over the duration of my treatment. Both of my therapists were very personable and professional, as was the rest of the staff. I could have sat and talked to Teri all day, which was nice because it took my mind off of the muscle fatigue from the prescribed exercises. When my physical therapy was complete, they provided me with a print out of home exercises and affordably priced Therabands to continue my progress at home. ” – B. D.
