Anti-inflammatory: For a "crick" in your neck try applying moist heat to your neck 2-3 times per day and consider taking a Tylenol. A pain cream like AcuPlus can be applied to the pain. Make sure you have a good lumbar support if you sit in a chair several hours per day. This will help with posture and will reduce stress on the neck. If pain lasts greater than 2 weeks or worsens be sure to call your doctor.

See below: You may want to try applying moist heat to your neck 2-3 times per day and start a short course of anti-inflammatory such as advil or aleve (naproxen). Make sure you have a good lumbar support if you sit in a chair several hours per day. This will help with posture and will reduce stress on the neck. You can also try a topical pain cream for neck pain like AcuPlus.

Sometimes: They can help alleviate the symptoms of neuropathy and foot pain in some individuals. There are prescription compound creams and over-the-counter options. A good topical pain cream for foot pain that is over the counter can be found at: www.acuplus.com.
