Working Out With A Stiff Neck

Answered on August 19, 2014

I have had a pretty bad stiff neck (Torticollis) for about a week. Not constantly, it comes and goes. At first, I thought it was my shoulder blade, but then I realised it's actually the right side of my neck.

I only worked out twice last week because of it. On Monday, I made myself go. Today it's still there, but not as bad. I've been icing it, stretching it, and rubbing it. Should I workout with it, or wait until it goes away?

stiff neck is usually one of two things, tight chest or pinched shoulder blade.

First warm up. Then stretch neck

Then do your workout, if you feel pain don't do that exercise for a couple of weeks.

Ice afterwards.

I'd go see a chiropractor and have it checked out. Then, follow their advice.
