What Are The Available Treatment Options?

Are There Any Natural Remedies To Fight Neck Pain ?

Some of the common natural remedies to combat neck pain are:

3. Massage With Essential Oil

Ingredients: Lavender Oil

Ways to Use:

Gently rub some lavender oil on the neck and shoulder. Massage in a circular pattern. Apply pressure on the area for 10-15 minutes
