Physical therapy: Assuming ther was no trauma preceding the event. Usually conservative treatment, including physical therapy, swimming, massage should help. If you are working, ergonomic adjustments can help, i.E, ear piece for phone, making sure the computer screen keeps your neck neutral.

Headaches/Cerv disc: Persistent pain deserves an evaluation. Based upon age, i would suspect a disk herniation, or occipital neuralgia causing muscle spasm/tension. This may then create the muscle tension headache scenario. Nsaid's may actually cause headache in some. Try tylenol (acetaminophen). Pursue cervical pt. Robin mckenzie book "treat your own neck" is $8.32 online. Formal spine or neurology eval if no better.
