Thanks for writing to us

From the description that you have provided, it seems that you have suffered a muscle sprain . You need to provide rest to the neck- preferably use a cervical collar. Avoid massaging the area. Doing a hot fomentation will be helpful. Avoid all overhead activities and do not use a pillow.
In case the pain is persistent even after taking a mild pain killer, then you might need stronger prescription medicines like muscle relaxants after consulting your orthopedician.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
