DEAR DR. GOTT: My friend fell and injured his neck badly about three years ago (when he was 13). Since then, his neck has caused him a lot of pain and hurts him constantly. Many times, he cannot move around or even concentrate on anything else. Because of the pressure his head puts on his injured neck, the muscles are always severely cramped, and no amount of rubbing or massaging helps.
