If you have a strain in your neck is it called a crick or a crook?

Not Medical Advice: A stiff neck is sometimes called a 'crick'.

“Crick” is a catch-all term for many neck ailments. It usually go away by itself in a few days without medical attention. But a crick can be temporarily disabling, and is certainly distressing.

Neck pain or a stiff neck is a common problem which usually gets better after a few days or weeks. It's rarely a sign of anything serious.

You can often get a painful or stiff neck if you:

sleep in an awkward position

use a computer for a prolonged period of time

strain a muscle because of bad posture

Anxiety and stress can also sometimes cause tension in your neck muscles, leading to neck pain.
