A stiff neck usually occurs when muscles are weak and are misused due to poor posture. Poor posture can cause the muscles to tire and the muscles around the neck to become overstretched. Specific stretches can help relieve the stiffness in the neck, along with strengthening exercises to help rebalance the joints.
Neck pain without an apparent cause often results from a minor sprain or tear to the muscle tissue. This type of pain is the most common neck pain. The pain can sometimes be due to poor posture. Holding the neck out of alignment for extended periods can strain the muscles.
Pain to either side of your neck is usually nothing serious. It is often caused by muscle strain, poor sleeping position, or bad posture. If the pain continues for more than a few days, it is advised to seek medical help or check out home-based remedies.
