Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that you had a muscle sprain in your neck. A bony injury needs to be ruled out after an MRI scan of the neck. Till then you can use a cervical collar for relief. Do a hot fomentation and take a mild pain killer till proper diagnosis is made.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
