Stretches for neck pain, does it matter? The simple answer is OF COURSE IT DOES! Recent research looked at sedentary workers with neck pain and the different stretches they performed. Some performed active stretches some performed static stretches. The conclusion? Both were about the same. The participants performing stretches of ANY TYPE reported improvements in range of motion, pain threshold, and perceived disability. Just imagine how much more effective those stretches would be if your neck was properly aligned with a chiropractic adjustment.
