As soon as the pain allows, the following exercises should be commenced. These exercises can help reduce the stiffness in the neck and accelerate recovery.
These exercises should be should be repeated 10 times, 3 times each day, if pain allows. Each time the exercises are done, the patient should be able to move the neck a little further. If the pain fails to improve or becomes worse, the exercises should be stopped immediately, and a doctor or Chartered Physiotherapist consulted.
