Popping in upper neck/lower head. No pain. What could it be?

Hi, Was playing tennis yesterday and when lunging for a shot, I felt something pop in my upper neck/lower portion of my head. I have had that happen before but not in a long, long time. No other pain or anything associated with it, wondering what it is? My tennis partner mentioned that he has had it happen to him as well.

Thanks for writing to us.
A pop in the lower portion of the head may be a joint popping due to the sudden movement or the muscle spasm. If there is no persistent pain or tingling or numbness in the arms or hands then you need not worry.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
