In brief: Limit motion

Most of the time this is caused from excessive overhead work, or excessive lifting and turning of the neck.
Othertimes, it is wear and tear arthritis. Motrin or aleve (naproxen) usually help. If these do not help then see your local back specialist for other recommendations.
