Neck pain is a common complaint which will probably affect everyone at some point in their life. It is however, usually short-lived, lasting for just a few days at a time. More often than not a stiff neck is caused by muscular tightness. A muscle in the neck may have been strained (pulled/torn) or have gone into spasm. Levator scapulae is a common culprit.
