Brief Answer: Medication like methylcobalamine with neurotropic Detailed Answer: Hello, I have studied your case. Medication like methylcobalamine with neurotropic [like pregabalin] and analgesic will reduce pain; you can take them consulting your treating doctor. Some exercises which can be done after pain has reduced include- gradual neck rotation, touching your ears to shoulder, shoulder shrugging exercises. You may consult physiotherapist for further guidance. He may start TENS, or ultrasound which is helpful in your case. Some life style modifications to prevent pain– Take break every 40 min from work and do some neck rotations, stretches, walk and get back to work. Sit with taking support to your neck, do not use thick pillow in bed. If all this management is not giving you pain relief then you may need surgical decompression to release pressure due to spinal stenosis. You can search doctor near your locality by entering locality in upper left window of our website, in search your health. Hope this answers your query.
