Here is an exercise option for the last article I reviewed and posted.  I have combined two exercises together Scapular Depressions + Chin Tucks to improve neck pain.  I have posted two Youtube videos to this post.  The Scapular Depression Exercise helps to draw the shoulder blade to the ground by activating the lower trapezius muscle.  The Chin Tuck exercise helps to strengthen the deep cervical muscles and place the head in better alignment during the first exercise.  I prefer combining the two exercises together to get a the most out of the exercise.  I would recommend completing this exercise 2-3 times a day for 12 repetitions and holding each repetition for 5 seconds.
