Brief Answer: Treatment includes- Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. Neck pain that you are having could occur due to degenerative spondylottic changes of the cervical spine. X-ray of neck in lateral view or MRI will help in the diagnosis. Treatment includes 1. Use of cervical collar helps in immobilisation and brings relief. 2. Medical drugs like pain killers - acetaminophen/ibuprofen and muscle relaxants might be helpful. 3. Cervical isometric exercises are beneficial to maintain the strength of the neck muscles. Neck and upper back stretching exercises, as well as light aerobic activities, also are recommended under the guidance of a physical therapist. 4. Hot fomentation helps in relieving acute symptoms. 5. You can avoid using a pillow. 6. You can avoid using a pillow/ watching TV or working on computer. Avoid prolonged sitting / leaning forward/ 2 wheeler driving for long distances. A course of Muscle relaxants, interferential therapy (IFT) for a week followed by exercises will help you. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care
