WEEK 3/10: NECK MOBILITY AT YOUR DESK:
This week we are addressing how to release your neck with the Acumobility Ball. Being hunched over a computer for hours a day causes your neck to become strained and tense. And just like the forearm and tricept, it is also essential to look at the neck when it comes to carpal tunnel and wrist pain. Try this neck release and stretch a few times a day to keep your neck feeling loose. *Be cautious when applying pressure to the neck if you have any pre-existing conditions. Consult your physician first. We suggest beginning with the Level 1 Acumobility Ball and advancing to the Level 2 Acumobility Ball when ready!
