After a less than warm half term, the sun is finally shining so with luck, and unless it’s yet another false start, summer is here at last and you can start getting outside and enjoying life.

More on necks
In our Easter newsletter, I looked at neck pain caused by work issues and what to do about it. In the next part of the series which is now available online I look at neck pain caused by the more day to day activities within the home. Obvious suspects include neck pain and stiffness caused by phones and tablets as well as our pillow set up. If you get neck pain, the advice really should help improve it but if for some reason you are still suffering, please get in touch so I can narrow down both the problem and the solution for you.
Yoga – a recommendation
An integral part of treatment is looking at what exercise and movement you do away from the clinic. We encourage you to try or return to yoga as it ticks so many boxes. It improves strength and flexibility, is great for circulation and is both calming and invigorating. Ideally, a class environment is best but this often doesn’t fit in with people’s schedules. Thankfully there are now many resources out there on the internet which can help you in the comfort of your own home. Whether you want a routine to try at home or just want to try a few poses, this is one of the better routines of the hundreds you’ll find on Youtube. So why not give it a go?
Or for a longer routine that is targeted at back pain, this one is great too and one of our recommendations.
