Health Tip: Ease Neck Pain

Health Tip: Ease Neck Pain


(HealthDay News) -- When your neck aches from a disc problem, arthritis or injury, you may be able to get relief at home.

The ADAM Encyclopedia mentions these potential home remedies for neck pain:

  • Take an over-the-counter medication, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
  • Ice the area for the first 72 hours, then apply heat.
  • Take a break from regular exercise and activities for a few days.
  • Peform slow, gentle range-of-motion exercises to help stretch muscles in the neck.
  • Gently massage painful parts of the neck.
  • Sleep without a pillow on a firm mattress, or use a neck pillow.
  • Wear a soft neck collar for a brief period.
