In brief: Probably

Degenerative neck conditions (disc herniation, collapsed disc, abnormal movement, loss of normal curvature) can produce neck pain.
One of the standard initial treatment is physical therapy to strengthen your neck muscles. So, if your neck pain is due to the above conditions, pt and neck strengthening can help.
