Rigid neck pain can arise from pressure, an injury, even your sleeping posture. Those who have suffered from rigid neck pain are very much aware how annoying it is. Fortunately enough, many solutions are available to ease pain and stiffness in your neck.
In the following part, I will teach you some ways that works best for easing stiff neck pain.
1 Icing and Heating
Put a heating pad on your neck for 5-10 minutes. Then remove the heating pad and supplant it with an ice pack. Hot and cold packs can be used alternatively a couple of times every day until your neck pain is relieved. You can also consider buying an “ice hot” rub or patch.
Massage proves to be very effective in relieving neck pain. Have someone massage your neck or head. Undergoing a neck massage will remove the kinks from your neck and relieve the pain resulting from the stiffness. If there is no one you can turn to for help, you can do it yourself.
You can take a few Tylenol or Advil. Moderate pain-killers can temporarily relieve your neck pain without creating any danger. But keep in mind: follow the doctor’s dosing instructions do not overdose it, or it may bring some side-effect on your body.
