Find the painful spot on your neck using your fingers. Use the right hand if the pain is on the right side, or the left hand if the pain is on the left side of your neck.
Press the painful spot with your finger or fingers (it depends how big is the painful area). The pain should be significant, but bearable.
If you cannot reach the painful spot as you should, you can use a tennis ball or some similar item.
Turn your head slowly in the opposite direction from the stiffed side, then lean it and rotate it diagonally just like you want to touch your armpit with your chin. Hold this position for 10 seconds and then you can relax.
