Prolonged neck pain

Hi Doc, I did a 250 kms trip on a royal enfield and was fine during the ride and slowly developed a muscle catch in the neck area. I applied nicer gel and volini which reduced the pain and gave a temporary. The pain gradually decreased and now i am able to move my neck and there still seems to be a slight pain in the morning and decreases during the evening. Also the catch was on the left side of the neck and on turning the head towards right i feel a pull from my elbow. seems like there is a nerve connected and im trying to pull it . Please suggest .

You have strained your trapezium muscle... It usually takes 3 weeks to settle down..kindly visit an orthopaedic surgeon, he will put you on Physiotherapy and u will feel better
