Is Neck Pain an emergency?

Neck Pain9

Neck pain is a common complaint. Neck muscles can be strained from poor posture — whether it’s leaning over your computer or hunching over your workbench. Osteoarthritis also is a common cause of neck pain. Seek immediate a neurologist, if your neck pain is accompanied by numbness or loss of strength in your arms or hands or if you have shooting pain into your shoulder or down your arm. It may be a case of Nerve Damage.

Contact a doctor if your neck pain is severe / Persists for several days without relief / Spreads down arms or legs / accompanied by headache, numbness, weakness or tingling. Seek immediate care if severe neck pain results from an injury, such as a motor vehicle accident, diving accident or fall.
