Yes, dry needling is helpful in your case but by the expert hands.. Otherwise  Ultrasonic therapy, TENS, and hearing therapy along with some strengthening exercises are helpful and safe as its not a big issue... Get hot water fomentation done +apply some painkiller gel+ take rest+avoid forward neck bending+no travelling +no manual exertions +no cold exposure.
