Tags: backache , exercise

This App is an exercise guide for the neck and upper back. There are 21 exercises that are explained in detail.

There are photos, descriptions of the muscles involved and helpful tips to make sure you are following the instructions correctly.

This App offers similar advice to that provided by a fitness book or magazine. You might not find anything new, but if you need a comprehensive list of exercises and stretches that focus particularly on the neck and upper back, then it could be useful.

Whilst there is no specific medical evidence to suggest that these exercises will prevent neck or back pain, it is generally accepted that regular exercise, stretching and strengthening of the body can help prevent pain and injury.

These exercises are consistent with those recommended by many fitness instructors; it will not do you any harm to try them.
