Exercises to Strengthen our Necks

At some point in our lives, most of us will deal with some kind of neck pain. There are many causes of pain ranging from arthritis in the neck, spondylosis in the neck, rheumatism, fibrositis, slipped disc, and neuralgia to name a few. The pain can be constant or intermittent and last days, months, or even years.
