If you're having issues with the player:

This Neck Stretch is designed to access the anterior scalenes, a layer of deeper neck muscles that cover both sides of the neck. They are often quite tender and tight, so this stretch can provide a lot of relief. The Scalenes not only cause pain when tight, but restricts range of motion in the neck.

At first, this stretch hurts because of how tight my neck muscles are. But after a while, it feels SO much better than it did before.
