My granddaughter is having really terrible neck pain, she can't move her head? I have a heating pad on her and have given her Advil (ibuprofen)

In brief: Cervical neck pain

Anti-inflammatories, heat/ice, and physical therapy are good first line treatments for myo-fascial/facet/discogenic mediated neck pain.
I would touch base with her pcp and get some x rays. I assume she isn't running fevers or had any recent trauma or symptoms of paralysis?
