Stiff Neck from Pull-ups

Yesterday during the legs and back exercises, I could feel my neck starting to get tense; this morning it felt worse. I think it was caused by two reasons: poor warm up, and I was trying to squeeze in a couple more pull-up reps. I didn't get a good warm-up because I was tending to my daughter, who seems to need a diaper change every time we start exercising. Squeezing in a couple extra reps caused my form to suffer and put the tension in my neck instead of my back. I did some looking around to see what I could do better, and found some good advice and demos.

For now, I am going to enjoy my recovery day tomorrow and use a few basic techniques for relieving neck pain, such as soaking in a hot bath and getting a massage.

If ever you encounter severe pain in your neck, you should consult your doctor for some check ups. Then if ever you need special treatment, for sure the hospital will provide you an efficient physical therapy (Dallas TX) regimen; likewise a physical therapist (Dallas TX) will assist you for effective therapy.
