Many people suffer from neck and shoulder pain on a regular basis. Stress, poor posture, accidents, and long-stored physiological tension can contribute to a mild stiff neck or even a full-blown muscle spasm of the neck, shoulders, and upper back.
When confronted with neck pain, we tend turn to medication or a heating pad for relief. But, there are some easy stretches that, when done regularly, can help relieve and possibly even ward off, this tightness. Whether your neck and shoulders are sore because you slept funny or overdid it in your exercise routine or because you’re stressed, these yoga poses can help relieve the pressure.
