If you are having symptoms of pressure on the nerve...pain, tingling, etc. moving down the arms, into the hands or just neck pain, the use of acupuncture therapy can release the pressure on the nerve and stop the symptoms.

There's not enough information to make a specific determination.  Is this from an injury? Sleeping on your neck in an awkward position?  Depending on what makes sense in your situation, you could try acupuncture, acupressure, massage therapy, reiki, Vitamin B complex to support nerves, heat/hot water to start.  Focused, rhythmic breathing also helps release pain. Take 20 minute sea salt baths once or twice a day.
