About this article
To treat neck and back pain naturally, try doing some light stretches, such as shoulder rolls and circular head movements, to reduce muscle tension. If your pain started in recent days, apply an ice pack or bag of frozen vegetables wrapped in a towel on the sore area to reduce inflammation and swelling. But if your pain has disturbed you for over a week, you can increase your blood flow with a heat pad, hot water bottle or hot shower, which helps reduce your pain. You can also try doing yoga to strengthen your muscles and help you relax.
