Thanks for posting your query.

Neck pain in your son after sports seems to be due to muscle spasm.
He needs regular muscle stretching and strengthening exercises of neck to strengthen the muscle around neck and to relive the spasm.

Give him diet XXXXXXX in calcium and vit d3. Include dairy products and fresh fruits in his diet.

Hope this will helps you. Let me know if you have any more concern.
Please accept my answer if you have no further query.

Wishing him good health.
