Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain and muscle spasms can be due to following reasons-
-Prolapse of disc in cervical spine.
-Cervical stenosis or narrowing of holes from where nerves exit.
-Cervical spondylsis.
-Stress.
-Deficiency of vitamin B12.

She should do following to have relief -
-At least have an x ray of cervical spine. Best will be to have a MRI of spine.
-Wear a cervical collar. This will at least give rest to her strained muscles.
-Avoid bending the neck at abnormal position for long time, like on computer.
-Do warm water fomentation with help of water bag over the neck.
-Take a good analgesic like combination of tramadol with paracetamol and get a muscle relaxant prescribed from the physician.
-Test for levels of vitamin B12, If low do take Vitamin B12 supplements.
-Take help of a physiothearpist .He will be able to give her relief by intermittent traction, ultrasonic therapy etc.

I hope this answers your query.
