The first thing apply moist heat on the neck for about 15-20 minutes .
This can be followed by very gently massaging the back of the neck by skin moistures once you feel you can move your neck somewhat easily and without pain, you can try some slow neck and shoulder stretches and head tilts, if these doesn't ease the stiffness even by a fraction, it is better to pay a visit to an orthopedist.

In brief: Water exercise
You would need access to a pool, but water exercise is an excellent way to burn calories and get in shape.
You could swim, walk-run in chest deep water, join a water aerobics class. Regular aerobic exercise not only helps with weight loss but also reduces back pain for many folks. If you have no pool access, a recumbent exercise bicycle may be a good alternative.

In brief: It is not easy
Most children with achondroplasia have delayed motor milestones, problems with persistent or recurrent middle-ear dysfunction, and bowing of the lower legs.
Less often, infants and children may have serious health consequences related to hydrocephalus, craniocervical junction compression, upper-airway obstruction, or thoracolumbar kyphosis.Good luck thanks.
