    I often have to deal with a stiff neck and shoulders. Anyone can recommned some good preventive exercise/ointments and medication? It seems that regular pain killer did nothing to alleviate the symptoms.

    I sometimes get this, when things are stressful. If a good nights sleep does not do it, I take two Voltaren Rapid and maintain the dose through the day. Works wonders but it probably has another brand name in the US.

    Two or three Tylenol followed by a couple large glasses of wine.

    Otherwise, using a rowing machine (works the entire back area), jogging and sleep seem to help.
