Why does my Neck Hurt all the time?
Neck stiffness can have several different explanations ranging in severity. If you simply wake up with a stiff neck from sleeping in a uncomfortable position and the stiffness resolves hours later is one problem. It is completely different if you have chronic neck stiffness and you are unable to completely turn your head to the left or right side. This lack of complete range of motion is commonly a problem with the joint alignment and disc spacing of the spine. If this is combined with chronic pain and muscle spasms then it s much more severe. Normally spinal degeneration will present with restricted range of motion and muscle spasms.
If you have this type of condition for more than a couple week you should have a professional evaluate the area spinal misalignments.
