The treatment will depend on seviarity of symtoms. Mild to moderate problems can be controlled by physiotherapy,change of posture, change in working condition.But if there is no relief ,surgery is needed.
you consult an orthopedic surgeon,he will guide you.
Medicines are to be taken only for excessive pain.-not on regular basis.
For time being you can try Tab.combiflam &tab neurobion one each twice a day for 5 days.

hi Karthikeyan
welcome to health care magic
i suggest u to go for x-ray of cervical done to rule out cervical spondylitis.
consult physiotherapist so that they can guide u abt exercise which wil give u relief from regular is also one of the option if u dont want to rely on pain killers.
homeopathy has also permanent solution for spondylitis without any side effects and prevent its recurrence.
