Over time there can be damage to adjacent joints. For example, torticollis can damage the neck joints over the years due to extra wear and tear. Dystoniascan cause the muscle to hurt, but not damage. ...Read more

A charlie horse.....: Large muscles use a lot of energy to do work, and this is supplied by blood. If the supply is not adequate their can be painful spasm; and if metabolites from heavy activity are not removed there can be spasm. Other causes can be a trapped nerve root irritating the muscle.
