Stretch + injection: This is something i see commonly. It can be caused by several conditions, but usually responds to a simple stretching and exercise program and nsaids like Motrin taken regularly for a couple weeks. If it persists, cortisone injection in the area of pain can be very helpful. This condition almost always resolved, but can take a frustratingly long time to do so!

Massage therapy: If it is not severe try massage. If it is more painful then ask your doctor for physical therapy or consider a chirpractor if you know a trustworthy one. If it persists, it may be a sign of a disc problem in your neck and an MRI may be needed.
