If you have neck discomfort, you want it to go away as quickly as possible. Exercise is one method to do this. So, what should you do now? What, more crucially, should you not do?
When Is the Best Time to Begin Exercising?
As long as your doctor approves, you should begin as soon as possible to alleviate stiffness and discomfort. Resting over an extended period of time, generally, more than a couple of days will make it more difficult to begin going again.
