The last thing you want to do is wake up with that dreaded neck pain, that’s the last thing you want to do to start off your morning, right? So, a couple of things you need to ask yourself is number one: positional. Were you in a disadvantage-type of position, all kinked up overnight, that’s usually going to be more a muscle or tendon that’s going to be spasming on you. However, if this is a chronic issue that you wake up in the morning and you feel like the Tin Man, you’re stiff, you’re achy, etc. but then by the time that you get your coffee, you hit the shower and you move a little bit, and it’s like someone hit you with some WD-40, that’s probably some arthritis that’s setting in on the neck, and you definitely need to be focusing on some joint mobility.
