Anyone else got any ideas?
What did you do to sprain the ligaments in your neck? If you don't know then I would suspect something else. I've sprained ligaments in my ankle and knee before and the pain was immediate. I used to suffer bad cricks in my neck, but I knew what the problem was. A crooked spine from years of sitting at a desk hunched over. And if I slept wrong I would be in misery the next morning. I was too cheap to go to a chicropractor, so I looked on the web for a solution. First, I thought of trying acupressure. I was shocked when it actually worked. Google "neck pain acupressure". I use the spot designated LI4. It doesn't solve the problem but it did give me some immediate relief. To straighten my back I lay on a carpeted floor and relax. If doing this causes your back to start knotting up, then it is crooked for sure. I relax to the point I can loose the curve in my lower back so that my spine in completely flat. Then I bend my knees up as if I was going to be doing sit-ups, but with knees together. Keeping my knees together and back flat, I roll my knees to the right, then the left as far I can. For me, everytime I go to the right I get a pop, like cracking a knuckle. When I stand up, the crick is gone and I have full range of motion and no more pain. Also, a hot shower on the neck helps a lot. This is what I do and it works for me. IF, this is your problem also, give it a try.
