Isometric Neck Push: This exercise will help strengthen your neck and improve support of the structures that surround it. Neck pushes can also improve upper back issues and overall posture.
Shoulder Retraction/Depression: Poor posture, especially for sitting for long periods, can cause your shoulders to roll forward. Over time, this adds stress between your shoulder blades. The Shoulder Retraction/Depression can help ease pain in your upper back.
Resistance Band Rows: In addition to sitting too long, your typical daily activities can cause your shoulders to roll forward, too. This can cause a lot of stress to the muscles between your shoulders. These rows can help alleviate the pain near your shoulder blades.
Remember, for all exercises, perform as advised by your chiropractor.
