Nerve is being impinged somewhere, pain is radiating in nature Apply hot fomentation Use thin pillow while sleeping Do active movements of neck & shoulders Do shoulder shrugs Do shoulders & neck stretching
Sounds like a nerve is getting impinged at some level in the neck. It may be due to facetal arthropathy of severe spondylotic changes or a disc prolapse. Medicines will give only temporary relief. You need to mibilise the cervical region either mannually or by a very effective machine called the spinal decompression therapy . Also she needs to do corrective and strengthening exs for her neck. Kindly visit a physiotherapist for further evaluation.
