Where Neck or Cervical Pain Begins
Pain in the neck can limit daily life in many ways. The neck or cervical spine may become painful from poor sleeping positions and poor posture as well as from traumatic events such as a car accident. Issues in the neck may lead to pain or loss of sensation or strength in the shoulders and arms. The Spine Team at JOI has the tools and resources to evaluate and treat your neck pain and get you back to your life!
