Brief Answer:
Neck collar and Diclofenac gel

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I am medical doctor, an associate in Department of Orthopedics, working with an experienced Spine surgeon. I answer on his behalf.

Wear a neck collar for 2 weeks, this will stabilize the neck spinal bones reducing the friction and also relax the neck muscles providing relief by helping healing.

You can also apply DICLOFENAC gel for pain reduction when the pain is severe. Do not massage after applying the gel.

Hope, I answered your query.
