The ligaments and tendons in the body are also designed for motion, and they also require working out. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but exercise and stretching is a good idea for anyone willing to do something about an annoying pain in the neck (pardon the pun). It may take weeks or even months for the spine and back muscles to yield to acceptance of the motion, and even longer to show signs of relief, but to cure back pain one stands a better chance by welcoming motion into their lives.
