|Exercises for the Neck|
Neck pain is often caused by weak muscles in the front and tight, overactive muscles in the back of the neck. Doing daily strengthening and stretching exercises can be helpful in preventing neck pain. Try the following exercises:
Lie flat on your back. Tuck your chin to chest and raise your head no more than an inch off the floor or bed. Hold this position until your muscles are tired (they may shake). Do this exercise three times, once or twice per day.
In a standing or sitting position, with your neck erect and tall, keep your chin level and jut your head forward. Then, drop your chin to your neck. Place your hands on the back of your head to gently encourage a stretch of the muscles at the back of the neck. Hold this position for several seconds. Do this exercise three to fives times, as much as once an hour, every day.
Looking straight ahead, tilt your head to one shoulder.With the same-side hand, gently pull your head toward your shoulder. Hold the stretch for several seconds. Repeat on the opposite side. Do this exercise three to five times on each side, as often as once an hour, every day.

Dr. Burak and his staff are professional, polite, and truly care more about their patients than they do the 'ol mighty dollar. He helped me tremendously before my deployment to Afghanistan, and I still feel good months later. He's one of those "fix the problem" Dr's, not one of those "lets just hide the pain for a while" Dr's. A great, great guy who knows his stuff!
