Exercises for neck pain. How to do it ?

Iam having neck pain quite oftenly. The pain is more after i get up from the bed. Iam not able to turn my head. Doctor gave me some tablets and the pain is less now. He told me to see a physiotherapist and top do some neck exercises. I was not able to meet the phyiotherpiast because of my tight schedule. Can any body explain me of some neck exercises?

It is better to consult a doc an da good physiotherapist only. Dont take chances. You cannot be totally busy, take care of your health, to take care of yourself better. Health is wealth.

I was told that I have splondyosis (c4 and c5) in the neck, I get severe neck pain from time to time but recently have been experiencing dizziness and a throbbing head and palpitations when lying down. Most nights the pain is severe and it wakes me up from sleep. I also have really bad headaches at the back of the head and sometimes it gets swollen. I just wanted to ask what is causing the dizziness and throbbing head and palpitations? Aisha
