    • ANSWER:
      Most neck pain is due to strain and spasm of the neck muscles. The common crick in the neck upon arising is one example of neck muscle strain. Neck pain in the morning may be due to poor sleeping habits. Sleep on a firm surface: a firm mattress is best; a bed board will make a soft mattress firmer. Stop using a pillow, or use special pillows that keep the head from twisting without raising it. If you fold an ordinary bath towel lengthwise into a long strip four inches wide, wrap it around the neck at bedtime, and secure it with tape or a safety pin, the overnight relief is often striking.
      Warmth may be of benefit in relieving spasms and pain. Heat may be applied with hot showers, hot compresses, or a heating pad. Heat may be used as often as practical, but don't burn the skin. Aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen will help relieve pain and inflammation.
      Neck pain, like back pain, is slow to improve and may take several weeks to completely resolve. If pain doesn't lessen in a week, call the doctor.

  4. QUESTION:
    How do I get a crick out of my neck?
    I woke up with a really bad crick in my neck. Now I can barely move it to the right.

    • ANSWER:
      T, try the football exercise of rolling (very slowly) your neck. If that doesn't help, put a heating pad on it. Usually, it'll fix itself but the neck isn't something you wanna mess with; so make sure whatever you do, do it slow. Good luck!!!
