Neck Rotation Stretch

The neck rotation exercise stretches neck muscles.

  1. Lie on the floor with a phone book or other thick book under your head, then slowly turn your head from side to side, holding position for 10 to 30 seconds on each side.

  2. Your head should not be tipped forward or backward, but should be in a comfortable position. You can keep your knees bent to keep your back comfortable during this exercise.

  3. Repeat 3 to 5 times.

  • Lie on back.
  • Turn head from side to side, holding position each time.
