Neck Conditions

Your neck consists of the muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves, all of which can cause discomfort or pain. Neck problems usually occur from overuse, such as from sitting at a computer for too long. Awkward sleeping positions, excessive exercise, or injuries from falls or car accidents are also common causes of neck pain. Some conditions can be successfully treated with simple measures include applying ice, bracing, physical therapy, or medication. Other injuries may require an injection or surgery to correct.  The educational videos below describe the various neck conditions and injuries treated by the expert Physicians at Resurgens Orthopaedics Spine Center.
