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.

My daughter is 25, has had chronic neck pain for years, underwent botox, nerve blocks and had the nerves burned in neck... pain there is back after only three months. THis past Oct. she became manic for about 2 weeks and I had her put in a psch ward or 10 days. She was diagnosed bipolar and given lithum. As we know people deny they have this and decide not to take meds... she has had problems with eating as well, being alergic to SO many different foods... up and down with the weight. She focuses on NOT getting heavy, as well. My question is could all or any of this be related to her GUT, intestinal tract?

I slipped on ice earlier this week and jerked my neck; I have been having terrible neck pain since then. I went to the ER and had a cat scan. The results said the following and I didn t know what this means or what kind of doctor I need to follow up with: CT Cervical Spine. No acute C-spine fracture appreciated. Paracentral disk protrusion c3/c4 with moderate central canal narrowing noted. Diffuse bulge C4/C5- this in conjunction with osteopathic ridging results in mild to moderate central canal narrowing. Degenerative arthritis. No subluxation. Straightening of C-spine, perhaps spasm. Do I need to see a doctor right away about this or can it wait?

I ve been experiencing neck and head pain. It feels as if something was tugging down on my neck muscles. My head feels as if it was too heavy for my neck to carry. It gets better with rest and by using a neck pillow. I wake up without pain, but it comes back later during the day.
