How do you get rid of neck cramps?

A Pain in the Neck

Cervical
Stretching, stretching and more stretching. Regular stretching is essential to help relax and condition the muscles of the neck since they are under constant tension, especially if you sleep in a bad position. Ensure proper support in the cervical curvature with a properly positioned pillow or support while sleeping. Heat, massage and trigger point injections may also help in severe cases.

Dr said I have cervical spondylosis I have lots of pain on my shoulders arms and I get cramps when I move my hands and neck I get dizziness at times?

Very general

Cervical
Spondylosis is a very general diagnosis and at your age would not be that significant. If your pain is traveling down one or both arms and there is weakness, the next step is a MRI scan. Most neck pain will resolve in time and with conservative care. If you have had the problem for more than a few months and it is not improving then you need to see a specialist for a more specific diagnosis.

Hmmm...

Massage
First order of business is to go see your Primary Care doctor and get checked up; your symptoms can be from a myriad of different causes and should be further evaluated. Massage therapy; a Hot shower, or an anti-inflammatory may be appropriate depending upon the etiology of your symptoms...which is why pinpointing the cause is so important. Hope you feel better.

When I stretch sometimes i'll have a muscle somewhere either in my arm or neck that hurts almost like im getting a cramp what could be the cause?

Needs physical exam

Neck
Could be muscular or a nerve in your neck. You require a physical examination. Though most of these types of issues are minor (but annoying!!), be sure you do not have a pinche nerve. Best of luck and feel better PK MD

Dr. Duane Keller answered:

Why do my neck cramp when i yawn?

Probable muscles

Neck_pain
There are probably muscle spasms. The question is why do the muscles cramp? This can be related to your breathing, head posture, jaw joint or chewing efficiency, airway space, sleep disturbances, etc. I would check with you physician or dentist to see if the answer to why the muscles cramp is discovered. Then you will know what and how to treat.
