Mobility Monday: The Neck of Desk Warrior Poet

Neck pain from sitting all day and staring at a computer or your cell phone?  How about tension headaches that never seem to go away no matter how much ibuprofen you take?  Your posture can cause you so many problems and we've addressed this before with your hips, pelvis and low back but never at the neck level.

A lot has been talked about with "head forward" position and the problems it can cause.  Short and tight muscles in the front of your neck that causes increased pressure on the nerves and can send a zing down your arm.  Long, weak and tight muscles in the back of your neck and knots/trigger points that feel like they are throbbing when you're not even doing anything. 

In this video Kelly Starrett gives some great options to help loosen up your neck, check your posture and help relieve some of your pain and problems with your neck.
