Anti-inflammatory: Neck pain usually comes from a degenerative joint or disc in the neck. Sometimes it's from a muscle strain or sprain. It is common for neck pain to refer to the head as well as shoulder blade. Early treatment options include a short course of nsaids (advil, aleve), gentle massage, moist heat, and focusing on posture. If pain lasts greater than 2 weeks see your physician.
