One word...TAP!! Neck cranks are nasty. Not difficult to sustain a fracture and or ruptured disk. If you are in the final moments of the Mundials...hang in there but keep in midn that your body needs to last a LONG time (hopefully).
If you have a Chiro, or ART person...that sounds good. Ice, ROM as tolerated.
