Three of the most common areas of injury for a carer are the neck, back and shoulders. Here's a link to a post I saw recently on 11 Stretches to Relieve Neck and Shoulder Tension on the website Bright Side.
Here is point number 1.
1. Neck roll
This is a very gentle stretch used to release tension around your neck.
* Roll a towel;
* Place it at the base of your head;
* Let your head fall back toward the floor and relax.
* Stay in this position for about 10 minutes unless you feel any sort of pain.

For many carers, taking care of themselves is often their last priority. Taking Care of Yourself encourages carers to consider their own needs. In this forum, carers explore the key barriers to focusing on self care and investigate ways to overcome these barriers.
