Unlock A Good Night's Sleep with These Proven Exercises for Neck Pains

Waking up in the middle of the night, feeling like your neck is in a vice, isn't just painful – it's life-altering. The disruption of your sleep cycle due to neck and shoulder discomfort is a story our expert team hears all too often at Roscoe Physiotherapy.

It's not just about the soreness; it's about how it affects your daily life.

Whether it's impacting your ability to work out, the joy of holding your kids, or just getting through a day at work, neck pain is frustratingly invasive.

In this blog, you will discover proven exercises for neck pains to unlock a good night's sleep!

Why Neck Pains Occur

Most of my clients are puzzled about the origin of their neck and shoulder pain. It often starts as a mild discomfort and gradually builds up over time.

This can be due to poor posture, stress, or incorrect sleeping positions. The pain varies – some days are better, others are unbearable. The inconsistency adds to the frustration, creating a cycle of pain and poor sleep.

Are you ready for effective exercises for neck pains?

Exercise 1: Gentle Neck Stretch

When to do it: Morning and evening.

How to do it: Sit comfortably with your back straight.

Gently tilt your head towards your shoulder, feeling a stretch on the opposite side of your neck. Hold this position for 15-20 seconds before switching sides.

This stretch eases the tension accumulated in the neck muscles, which is particularly helpful if your pain worsens at night.

Exercise 2: Shoulder Blade Squeeze

When to do it: During your workday.

How to do it: Sit or stand with your arms at your sides.

Gently squeeze your shoulder blades together, holding the position for about 5 seconds, then release. Repeat this 10 times.

This exercise is great for combating the effects of prolonged sitting or the 'computer hunch' and can contribute to relieving neck strain.

Exercise 3: Chin Tuck

When to do it: Throughout the day.

How to do it: While sitting up straight, gently tuck your chin in towards your chest, stretching the back of your neck. Hold for 5 seconds, then relax. Repeat 10 times.

This exercise helps in relieving tension in the neck muscles, particularly for those who spend long hours in front of screens.

BONUS: Empower Yourself with Knowledge

While these exercises are effective, understanding the 'why' behind your pain is crucial. That's why I recommend our free guide, "5 Tips For Relief From Nagging Shoulder Pain".
