Neck and shoulder pain. Woman holding her hands up to her aching neck and shoulders. Neck and shoulder pain and stiffness may be caused by spasm of muscles in the neck and back. It may also be due to whiplash injury of the neck in which soft tissues, ligaments and spinal joints, are injured due to the neck being suddenly and forcibly bent. Neck fractures and slipped disc may also cause considerable neck pain. Treatments of milder forms of neck and shoulder pain include use of painkilling drugs and massage.
