Many possibilities: You are likely to be holding a lot of tension in your upper back and neck muscles. The question is why? At your age I would hope you could find more than symptomatic care. Posture, situational stressors, trauma, visual concerns, poor sleep, depression, toxins, etc. A good clinician can help you sort through the possibilities while providing symptomatic relief. All the best.
