Neck pain. Man holding his neck in pain. This pain may be caused by muscle spasms. Alternatively it could be due to a whiplash injury where soft tissues, ligaments and spinal joints are injured when the neck is suddenly and forcibly bent. Neck fractures or a slipped disc may be to blame where there is considerable neck pain. Treatments of the milder forms of neck pain include the use of painkilling drugs and massage.
