Is there anything I can do for back and neck pain? I'm in my teens and the pain is almost intolerable at time, and tends to give me headaches help?

In brief: See your doc
Make sure you see your doctor for an evaluation and any diagnostic testing that needs to be done (such as xray to evaluate for scoliosis or stress fracture causing slippage of the bone or other spinal condition, lab work etc).
If your pain is just muscular in origin consider seeing a physical therapist for a stretching and strengthening. Neck pain can definitely trigger headaches. See your md.

Chronic neck and back pain in a teen is unusual. You need to see your doctor.
Dr. James Marx
Agree that neck and back pain in a teen is unusual. Onset in teen years is not unusual especially with a family history of migraine. Also, you need to examine your activites for causes such as cheerleading, gymnastics, or other sports which could be agravating those symptoms. You need to get to doctor for X-Rays and an examination.
