Neck Pain

Radiating neck pain that moves to the arm is serious and requires an evaluation by an expert surgeon. Surgeons with specialized training on cervical conditions are recommended for the most successful outcomes.

Neck muscles directly support the movement of your skull and can easily be strained. These mild or severe strains can also occur with poor posture, osteoarthritis, repetitive movement or even by leaning over a computer or hunching over a workbench.

Neck pain can occur suddenly or over time. It’s something that both men and women generally experience at any given life stage. It’s estimated that 8 out of 10 people will suffer from back or neck pain at some point in their life and it’s the third most common type of chronic pain.*

The symptoms of neck pain include soreness, numbness, loss of strength in arms or hands, or shooting pain into the shoulder or down the arm.
