    It depends on what the cause is - different causes dictate different remedies.

    Love Gusser's answer, even if dogtrainer is right. I want to say something like it depends on whether it's inside your neck or if somebody else is putting it therel A common whiplash was "fixed" by a chiropractor, but I also got sqashed (for want of  better word) by my neck pushed into itself: couple of fractured bones. One I got out of traction and the bones healed, chiropractic adjustments helped movement. Problem with that is that too many are convinced they can fix anything; yet it's almost an art form when done right. After decades, I know a dive gives me a headache, and I do it anyway, though an MD said, "no more." A gentle chiropractor who never forces anything can be a lifesaver. If I start getting a "sales pitch" when on the road and hunt one up, I leave. Like all specialists, they should never try to talk somebody into something for which they are not qualified.  My husband switched to chiropractic from pre-med, and had that gift after knowledge to know what to do. Relieve the pain within my neck, but he was a pain in the neck! Gusser's right-on: diivorce.

    I tried everything......warmth, cold, massage, medication, therapy, meditation, losing weight, Yoga..........when nothing worked, I finally divorced him. Have felt like a million bucks ever since.

    Though the correct treatment warrants a diagnosis, most commonly the neck pains are caused by over use or abuse of the neck. Improving posture, resting the neck, avoiding constant straining and analgesic medications help
