If you have a disc injury the pain will worsen when extending your head backwards, the pain may travel to your shoulder blade, and you may have symptoms that radiate to your arm.
As we age the fluid within the disc can begin to dry up. This is what is considered degeneration or arthritis. This causes the joints of the neck to lock up resulting in neck pain.
