I just returned from a trip to Tara (about 600km round trip). I noticed my neck was quite stiff and sore on the way back. I figured many other people would have the same issues given any long distance driving requirements.
What has helped me recover from this issue is
1. a massage
2. doing regular neck mobilisation exercises (not while driving)
Having a qualified remedial massage therapist work on your neck is relaxing and relieving. Doing those neck exercises always helps to keep the work of the therapist going.

Here is some step by step instructions on how to effectively mobilise you neck muscles and give them a good stretch.
