Acute neck pain can be extreme and it can be scary; but most of the time all that has happened is a severe spasming of the neck muscles or the immobility of the neck meaning, the joints of the neck have become very swollen and have not been able to move for some time, and now that prolonged dysfunction has lead to the severe pain and immobility.

Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear. Neck pain can be very bothersome, and it can have a variety of causes.
The Pain comes from the joint capsule swelling or the muscles becoming tight and applying pressure to the nerve that is exiting the spine. At times the pain can be very sever and pain could travel down the shoulder into the arm and hand.
