Hello,

I've heard over the years to "get the gravel out" of your neck when stretching.

Does anyone know what the cause of the gravel is?

IMHO, muscle knots.

I've never heard that expression, but I imagine it means don't grind the vertebrae on each other. Proper form for stretching the neck, or spine for that matter, is to extend not compress.
