Health Tip: Coping With Neck Pain
Keep moving as much as possible

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- An injury or sleeping the wrong way can lead to a major pain in the neck.

The American College of Rheumatology suggests these ways to ease neck pain:

  • Stay as mobile as possible, and limit the use of a neck brace. Avoid regular exercise, but try to move the neck gradually and slowly in all directions.
  • Stretch neck muscles during a shower with the heated water running over your neck.
  • Within 48 hours of noticing neck pain, apply ice up to 10 minutes at a time. After 48 hours, apply heat.
  • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as acetaminophen or an NSAID.
  • Consider massage therapy for chronic neck pain.
