Pain in the head and neck areas can manifest in a number of different ways, including pain, stiffness, and numbness. Axial neck pain is typically caused by strain or whiplash; radiculopathy can also radiate into the arms and is caused by nerve compression. Myelopathy is caused by pressure on the spinal cord and can also cause arm or leg weakness, numbness or difficulty walking.
Head and neck pain may also stem from other serious, yet seemingly unrelated, illnesses, including carotid artery dissection or pain from acute coronary syndrome. Our experts will help you pinpoint the source of your pain so you can treat the overall cause, not just the symptoms.
