Get a physiotherapy expert to assess your condition.

Then listen to his advice.

In my town, half of the physio guys have changed their business to "Sports Medicine". This is probably good, too.

My own mild experience with this problem has been a mix of sore shoulders, poor back posture, and slight arthritic changes in my neck vertebrae. Also reduced level of fitness when I don't exercise.

My point is, your problem might be any mix of things. It's probably impossible for you to diagnose it yourself, and you probably won't know what to do about it. On the other hand, I believe that if the problem is caused by your climbing activities, it's probably easy to fix.

I offer this same advice for any joint problem.

Totally depends on what's causing it...

The differential for a "stiff sore neck" without any other information is, well, LONG. Most reasons will have totally different treatments...

Well I run , and climb at least 4 or more times per week. I was told its from keeping your neck in one position for a long time belaying or sleeping wrong.
Or maybe a pinched nerve.
I was looking into some topical sports creams any recommendations?

I've got chronic neck problems that, I think, stem from a variety of things, belaying being one of them. I'm considering these: http://www.layhands.com/...nots_DoubleLoops.htm, or I might try to build a pair.

The probability of a pinched nerve being cured by a topical sports cream is quite low.
Get professional assessment.

enigma, I wish you hadn't deleted your post.

Having a stiff neck from holding your neck in a certain position is pretty common. If that is really the cause, then it's kind of analogous to a repeated-motion kind of injury.

Either stop doing the offending motion or position, or figure out an exercise you can do frequently (perhaps even while belaying) which keeps the symptoms from ever coming on in the first place.

It's not that hard to do, but I really don't have any idea of what is going on, since you deleted your post.

My neck got better. I took some medicine and used a heating pad and a cervical collar.
