The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggests how to manage a sprained neck:
- Take an over-the-counter pain reliever.
- Apply an ice pack to the sprain for the first few days after injury, then switch to a heating pad.
- Gently massage the area.
- Consider ultrasound or neck traction treatments.
- Ask your doctor about whether aerobic and isometric exercises could be helpful.
