Hi Mr. Lybrate-user forceful/jerky twisting of neck can potentially cause a cervical disc prolapse and you should avoid doing that. It is better that you learn some isometric neck exercises from a physiotherapist and do them when you feel" stressed"

Try to sleep without pillows-it helps your neck and shoulder muscles to relax properly and maintain a good spine posture.
