Neck Exercises
Stay as active as possible. Try to go to work and keep up your normal everyday activities - bed rest is not necessary. If you are given a neck-collar, try not to use this for more than one or two days.Remember that neck pain is rarely caused by a serious illness and will often disappear within a week.


People with weak neck muscles are more prone to neck problems and in such cases, an exercise programme to strengthen the neck is a good idea.

Neck Pain
Hi there!
How is your neck now?
I had the exact trouble as you (stiff neck that wouldnt get better) and it ended up being serious.
I had ruptured cervical (neck) disc. I didnt know it at the exact time either. Simply woke up with a stiff neck.
If you have questions, I will try to answer & help, though I am not healed.
Sincerely, patty
