Consider the muscles in your neck between your head and right shoulder.

I’ve been using this visualization technique to help me with stretching my neck, shoulders, back, lower back, and hips. I’ve found that I am better able to “click” things back into position, like I’m my own chiropractor. I imagine that all of the muscles in my body are a series of rubber bands. Sometimes, the rubber band ties itself in a knot, or slips out of position. A common one is in your neck / shoulder area, when a particular muscle should be on top or side of your shoulder socket and switches to the opposite.

You may have already found my previous articles discussing stretches and exercises for lower back pain, and the follow-up article after I started seeing a GOOD chiropractor.  For me, the neck exercises were helpful after my lower back issues were straightened out.  My worst pain was in the L4 / L5 disc, which the chiropractor popped back into place after 4 adjustments.  This was the first step in my recovery.  Now, I'm trying to re-train my muscles such that my posture is correct.
