Hi, treatment options include, Physical therapy. A physical therapist can teach you correct posture, alignment and neck-strengthening exercises, and can use heat, ice, electrical stimulation and other measures to help ease your pain and prevent a recurrence....Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation . Electrodes placed on your skin near the painful areas deliver tiny electrical impulses that may relieve pain...Traction. Traction uses weights, pulleys or an air bladder to gently stretch your neck. This therapy, under supervision of a medical professional and physical therapist, may provide relief of some neck pain, especially pain related to nerve root irritation....Short-term immobilization. A soft collar that supports your neck may help relieve pain by taking pressure off the structures in your neck. .. Surgery. Rarely needed for neck pain, surgery might be an option for relieving nerve root or spinal cord compression...Consult Orthopedician...
