Getting Pains in the Neck from using Poles? Some Exercises To Help.

If you're new to using Water Fed Poles Systems and specifically long range poles, looking up to 2nd/3rd/4th storeys no doubt you'll soon experience some feelings of discomfort  from looking up for sustained periods of time. Often the neck will begin to hurt or you may be experiencing discomfort or even pain in the neck of some kind, but most commonly is the feeling of a stiff neck. In this case, there are some simple exercises you can do to alleviate what I call, SSS (or stiff neck syndrome). For more information on the kinds of exercises you can do I'd recommend conducting a Google search for 'stiff neck exercises' and visiting a few of though free resource sites.
For me I find the front to back tilt the most effective exercise and side to side rotation. It's important to remember whilst doing these exercises to go slowly and avoid any sudden jerks in movements.

Let me know which exercises work best for you to relieve you of a stiff neck or cramp, by commenting on this post.
