Doctor:1. Rest to the affected muscles are very important; therefore avoiding unnecessary neck movements/jerks

Doctor:You can apply a thin layer of volini / diclogesic cream/spray on the affected part twice or thrice a day.

Doctor:Preferably lie on the side.

Doctor:Dolo 650 is good and since you felt better, you can continue them.
