If you see your doctor about neck pain then they will often offer you a type of medication to help you through the pain, as well as offering a referral to a good physical therapist who can start to work on your pain more directly.
With physical therapy you will undergo manipulation from your therapist which adjusts parts of your neck and spine to release tension and ease pain. You will also learn how to loosen up your neck to regain your full range of mobility.
The Alexander Technique
This is a famous technique used to help with posture and problems with the back, neck and spine. You should always go to a trained therapist to learn this technique, as otherwise you can cause more damage than good, but once you have learned the technique you can do it at home on your own.
For more serious neck problems, a doctor may give you regular steroid injections which bring down any swelling and inflammation and help a lot with the pain. It works as a long-acting anaesthetic which can be more useful than any other type of painkiller.
