Many people suffer from neck 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. However, there are several yoga poses that have therapeutic effects on the neck as well.
This simple exercise will help your neck and shoulder muscles to relax to certain extent. Try doing this while you are at work, sitting or standing! This can help reduce the stiffness of your neck.
