I had Andrea to demonstrate the exercises.

#1 – Rotate Head Side to Side with Foam Roller

Lie on the floor. Place the foam roller underneath your neck. Relax your upper body and put your arms to the side. Bend your knees and flatten the feet. Rotate your head to one side and go to a point where you get some resistance and feel a light stretch, then go back to start position and repeat the movement to the other side.

Start off with 1 set of 5 reps on each side alternating back and forth. Perform this exercise in smooth controlled movement with a good stop at the end position for 2 seconds. The intensity is light. The purpose of this exercise is to stretch out the muscles in the neck to help ease your neck pain.

#2 – Chin Nods on the Foam Roller

Lie on the floor. Place the foam roller underneath your neck. Relax your upper body and put your arms to the side. Bend your knees and flatten the feet. Nod a little and hold that end position for about 2 seconds, relax and repeat the movement.
