First of all follow the ergonomics advise which i am suggesting for atleast 1 month and if not at all any benifit then get an x ray done....
1 do not sit on system for long time and always sit in alert neck position means dont lose down your neck muscles
2 you MUST do neck strengthening exercise to strengthen your neck muscles along with shoulder movements too
3 do not sleep in wrong position ever and do not use so more pillows when you sleep... you can buy a CIRVICLE PILLOW available on medical stores
4 do not use cirvical collar much as your mucles will go for dissuse
5 take the pain killer only if u need it as it have no much interference with your problem
You will definetly get benifit by following it sincerely... Thank you
