You need to adjust your posture probably. Make sure that you keep your spine in a straight line and avoid hunching over. The problem comes from compressing the disks in your spine, so make sure to stretch yourself out from time to time as well. Stretching has never hurt anything!

This can be caused by stress on the joints due to poor viewing position looking at a computer monitory. It can be caused by an injury or whiplash.

The popping of any joints is a release of nitrogen gas that has built up between the joints. This can be caused by excess strain that is put on that particular joint or just day to day activities. There is no danger in the popping of joints but it can cause a gradual loosening of them over time.
