If you have minor neck pain or stiffness, take these simple steps to relieve it:

  • Apply ice for the first few days. After that, apply heat with a heating pad, hot compress, or by taking a hot shower.

  • Take OTC pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

  • Take a few days off from sports, activities that aggravate your symptoms, and heavy lifting. Resume normal activity slowly as your symptoms ease.

  • Exercise your neck every day. Slowly stretch your head in side-to-side and up-and-down motions.

  • Use good posture.

  • Avoid cradling the phone between your neck and shoulder.

  • Change your position often. Don’t stand or sit in one position for too long.

  • Get a gentle neck massage.

  • Use a special neck pillow for sleeping.

  • Don’t use a neck brace or collar without your doctor’s approval. If you don’t use them properly, they can make your symptoms worse.
