Welcome to XXXXXXX

There are many cause of pain in neck. More common causes are Physical & emotional stress, Muscle strain, prolonged posture and Cervical spondylosis.

X-ray (both view) of cervical spine will be required to rule out Cervical spondylosis.

You should consult an Orthopedic Surgeon for examination, diagnosis and treatment. Analgesic anti-inflammatory with muscle relaxant tablets and B-complex tablets and local application of Relaxyl ointment can help you to relieve symptoms.

If you have further query, please feel free to ask.
