Pain in the neck

So this afternoon I shot what was probably the worst round in the last five years, and I attribute my lousy score to neck stiffness. Zero flexibility from shoulders to atlas - no fun at all.

Anybody else have this happen? What's the fix?

You are probably all knotted up in shoulders and neck. ESP if your having hard time turning your head left and right. Go see a good chiro and get a massage or trigger pt work. You will be amazed how much range of motion you gain and how good you feel just after one visit! I am a regular and I go hard as I want at disc golf, day after day, with no issues, thanks to my Chiropractors!

Btw, not many know what C1 is called, kudos to you!

I get shoulder and neck pain that occasionally pinches a nerve in my throwing arm. I've been dealing with it for a long time. I went to PT for a while, and when it acts up I have a set of exercises that seem to help a lot.

Feel better Baz!

Sounds like me when I wake up and stretch too soon, or I fall back asleep in an awkward position only to wake up later with a crick in my neck. Usually it doesnt' take too much healing time to ignore but it doesn't just go away with aspirin or extra stretching. I don't get massages but I've always thought that would help cure the problem. As for a fix; meds, stretching and licker and maybe try that massage(?). Also, as my uncle said "walk it off" which, I believe, roughly translates to throw through it
Good luck...

Yeah, that happens to me every once in awhile. Usually in the morning when I am washing my hair. Stiff throughout the day and subsides overnight.

Getting old sucks. Maybe start a normal routine of yoga, pilates or something like that. Stay flexible and add some core strength. It couldn't hurt.

I started doing p90x now i am doing insanity. I don't have any pain anymore and it is mostly because of my core workouts. Since I have built my core up, I have hardly no pains anymore. The yoga and the deep muscle exercises are great. Don't get frustrated if you get smoked the first 2 weeks you do them.

Nice about p90x and insanity. I am doing "Convict Conditioning" and I really like them a lot. There is two books "Convict Conditioning" and "Convict Conditioning 2" which pretty covers all parts of body.

Perhaps in next 6 months, then I like to try P90X/Insanity. Which should I try first, P90X or Insanity?

My daughter (now 20) is fully into CrossFit and my god, she is super strong now, she can deadlift/clean and jerk etc more than I do

p90x you need some weights and bands. insanity you dont need anything. p90x is more muscle building than insanity which is more cardio based. I like p90x better because I like the workouts with weights. All you really need is a elastic band though.
