I am Dr.Amita and I would be assisting you with your concern.

You may be having some degree of cervical spondylosis.Spondylosis is arthritis of spine and neck joints and discs may have some degree of degenerative changes causing the feeling of tightness on bending.

Most people will improve with physiotherapy to increase the mobility of neck and to strengthen the muscles around the neck.

This is the initial answer.Reply for any clarifications.
