In brief: Therapy

There is a variety of approaches.
They depend on the presence of pain and other symptoms. Those include range of motion exercises, ultrasound stimulation, heat/ice applications, massage, tens unit applications, stretching techniques. Physical therapist will be able to decide on which ones to use.

In brief: Consider ART

Active release therapy (art) can be very good for shoulder / neck combo.
Be wary of anyone who wants to adjust or crack your neck. Stretching after a good cardio warm up is also key. And something you can do on your own.
