3. I have a sore neck when I wake in the morning and a crack sound, what should I do?

5. I “crack” or “pop” my joints in my neck a lot to take away the pain and stiffness that I have been suffering from for years. Is it something I shouldn’t be doing?

“Cracking” or “popping” of joints is common as long as it doesn’t hurt when they “pop”. However, you would want to check your doctor on the constant pain in your neck.

6. I did the exercises and it felt better. However, my neck seems to be tightening up again. How can I get rid of it for good?

Stick to the exercises and do it for the long term! Before the exercises, try warming up the muscles with warm water or a warm pack.
