You will achieve the best results with this exercise if performed in a sitting position.
Grasp your Mr P firmly behind the head and wrap your other hand around the first hand for support.
SLOWLY, pull forward while leaning back. Once you've achieved the maximum amount of tension that you can tolerate, hold for 10 seconds.
Release tension and start again. Do 10 repetitions of this exercise. You may want to experiment with different directions of stretching to see which direction would be best for you. Finish of with a good soak in a warm tub.
Tip: When performing the Tension Stretch, do it while sitting. Using the edge of the chair as a background reference point - - really try to pull enough so that you can see a noticeable stretch taking place.
