Muscle Spasms in the Neck

has anyone out there had a muscle spasm in there neck? and if so, how long to recover? had one happen to me this weekend-fucking horrable. 6 weeks out from a meet and then this. thanks

Yes, related to my AC impingements. I used to get them in my back regularly (before I started lifting).

My physio gave it a brutal massage and ice. Also showed me some stretches. You know that “you shouldn’t feel pain when you stretch” advice? Doesn’t seem to apply here!
