Your bad posture can put stress on your neck muscles. Try to change your sleeping position, get a new pillow, or better yet, exercise! There is a lot of weight that on your put on your neck, so try to give it a rest. Make sure to rest or lie down in a very comfortable position and of course a comfortable pillow.

Stress causes neck pain. Relax and try to calm down. Do gentle neck exercises like looking from left to right then up and down, this way your neck can go back to its normal state. Another remedy is putting ice cubes on a cloth and dab it onto your neck but not for too long since it can worsen the pain.

Massaging your neck could also help but be careful on the areas you massage especially not on your spinal cord and remember not to put too much force during a massage. You could also use a warm compress, it can help the circulation and it also relieves your stiff muscles. Again, don’t put too much heat on your neck.

In order for you to not have any pain in the neck, make sure to maintain a proper posture when doing something or even the moment you sleep.
