Sleep with a better pillow.
Select a pillow that’s made to support your neck while sleeping.
Improve your posture.
Use low back support which can actually help you keep your head and neck in proper alignment.
Get moving (gently).
Do low-impact aerobic exercises that increase the blood flow to muscles in your shoulders and neck. Talk to your doctor before starting or changing any exercise regimen.
Chill down or warm up.
Use an ice pack or heating pad to soothe neck and shoulder pain.
