These are the little joints between each one of the vertebra (bones in your neck), which can cause pain if they are stiff or the muscles around them are in spasm. There are nerves that come out from the spinal cord at each facet joint, and these can get irritated.
Irritation of the discs between each vertebra can also cause pain and may be irritated due to alignment of the neck and spine when sitting or standing.
After working out why you may have tight and sore muscles in the neck, these can respond really well to manual therapy and stretches and strengthening exercises.
