In the cases of acute neck tension, there are a couple exercises which can be performed to alleviate it, such as exercises with foam rolls, which involved taking a roll of hard foam, and either standing or lying down on it and rolling on it.

AWTUVI exercises, in which you press your back against a wall or stomach on the floor and move your arms in patterns which can alleviate the pain, and four legged spine rotation exercises, in which you get on all fours, and slowly rotate your back using your arms to direct upwards and downwards.
