A crunching sensation in the neck could merely be a subluxation in the area. Which is a misalignment of the bones. An adjustment by a skilled chiropractor should help significantly.

A crunching feeling in the base of your neck could be due to an injury or repetitive strain injury, or sitting in the same position for too long. A more serious cause could be arthritis or a tumor.

The crunching sensation could come from tendons being stretched over your vertebrate, most likely as a result of poor posture or stress. Myofascial tension could also be a cause. Massage and slow long stretching could alleviate this.
