Most neck pain is caused by a strain and can be treated without surgery
Your doctor will suggest steps to help you deal with the pain and help you heal. You may be asked to wear a cervical collar to limit neck movement and support your head (see diagram). Short-term bed rest also allows you to rest your neck muscles. Cervical traction is a more serious treatment option. This form of traction gently pulls the head and stretches neck muscles. It also provides temporary relief by keeping the neck immobilized. A portable cervical traction device can be used at your home or office

Depending on the cause of your neck pain, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen (e.g., AdvilTM) may help reduce the discomfort, and sometimes a short-term use of narcotic painkillers is necessary. Muscle relaxants can also help by stopping muscle spasms. In more extreme cases, trigger point injections are a good option. (Trigger points are knots of muscle under the skin that form when muscles do not relax.) The injection contains a local painkiller that sometimes includes a corticosteroid

Often physical therapy is part of your treatment plan. Passive treatments such as cold or heat, deep tissue massage, and ultrasound often help alleviate pain and stiffness. Specific exercises help build strength and increase your range of motion. Physical therapists also teach you about your condition, correcting your posture, and relaxation techniques. Overall, physical therapy helps to reduce muscle spasms, increase blood circulation, and promote healing
