At Heartland Orthopedic Specialists, our specialty-trained neck doctors are the experts in assessing, diagnosing, and treating neck injuries and conditions.
The neck is a complex system of muscles, nerves, and vertebral bones confined in a small space, making it vulnerable to damage and injury. Pain can be caused by a myriad of orthopedic issues, including abnormalities in the bones or joints, traumatic injuries, poor posture, degenerative diseases, and muscle strains.
Though neck pain is quite common, it is important to seek treatment with a neck specialist if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of neck pain:
- Pain that radiates to the arm or hand
- Weakness of the arm or hand
- Sensitivity or sensory disturbance of the arm or leg
- Clumsiness or deteriorating coordination of the arm or hand
Neck injuries can result in spasms and pain in the muscles as well as referred pain experienced as headaches. Additionally, structural problems within the vertebrae, discs, and nerves of the neck can present as neck pain, headaches, and paresthesia.
If left untreated, neck injuries and conditions can progress and cause further damage and severe discomfort, leaving you to suffer with chronic pain, weakness, or numbness. Seek specialized treatment to ensure that a proper diagnosis is made.
