    My wife will get this. I spend a few minutes massaging out the knots a couple of times a week. She let it get so bad several years ago ended up going to a chiropractor(good ones are hard to find, but we were fortunate).

    It was mainly due to long term posture issues and stress. Keeping neck tilted down for long periods of time, plus she was sleeping on a stack of pillows which kept her neck jacked forward all night, eventually this catches up to people. So throughout the day take just a few seconds, roll your head around, look up for a while. Maybe find a setup where you are looking more straight ahead.

    If the pain is traveling you could be creating a curvature where one was not meant to be. This is when my wife went to the chiropractor. Had to go on an 8-12 week therapy plan to correct it, but it worked and it has not worsened again unless she falls back into bad habits.

    Thank you. I think in my case it's old dance injuries plus bad posture whilst programming.

    I haven't had much luck with chiropractors where I'm at; used to have a really good one when I lived in Coventry.

    It's all part of getting old, innit.

    Yoga really did help.

    I'll have to put the ballet on hold till it heals though.

    Yep we moved away, from the city where her chiropractor was. She tried 3 here, very bad results. So, if she feels herself starting to get out of alignment she'll schedule with the old chiropractor an hour and a half away, a few times a year.

    I suppose so. Fortunately, I've been in a stretch these last few years(mid to late 40s) where I haven't had anything like that going on. But, I was on a streak before that. Did PT for plantar faciitis(trail running injury), rotator cuff(muscling things from bad angles), weakening knee, other rotator cuff, bicep tear(moving injury). Fortunately, all just took a little bit of physical therapy and the last three years I've been injury free, but I do a little extra maintenance workouts to keep these areas strong.
