Neck Stretch

Common strains such as a sore neck or wrists complaints can be assisted with the following simple stretches.

You don't need to be about to perform a physical activity to benefit from these, in fact you'll often perform the upward stretch without realizing that you have just done it.

By aiming to place one arm over the other, you will achieve a greater stretch, in both the wrists and shoulder blades, ideal for those typing away.
