Hello I am new to this site. I am a 20 year old male ex-football player ( which may or may not be important with this injury ). I have this pain since I am about 16 years old and I can't get it away.
I am always in the need to crack my it may be in any direction sideways, back and forth. Anytime my neck is not lying down I sense this lingering pain that is always there. But when I lie down I can sense the pain but doesn't affect me a lot. I think maybe I am missing muscle around this part of my neck and I need to compensate by always cracking my neck.
Thanks for the help In advance
