Neck pain is a common, serious condition that can be for a brief period of time or long-lasting. Pain in the neck area (cervical spine) can seriously impact a person’s daily life and can worsen over time. This condition, if untreated, can cause excessive wear and tear that may lead to arthritis and degeneration of spinal discs/vertebrae and further discomfort.
Pain/tingling/numbness in the neck, shoulder, arm and/or hands
