Hi
You must get MRI scan of head and neck to rule out multiple sclerosis.
For spasticity, Prednisone and gabapentin 300 mg once a day may be tried after neurologist confirms from mri findings, if not present, then isometric cervical exercises and methycobalamin 500iu. And thiocolchicoside 4mg combinations tab once or twice a day would help.
Physical therapy is mainstay of treatment
