General Symptoms of Neck Injuries

Whether from a car accident or simply sleeping in a strange position, most people have experienced neck pain at some point in their lives. The difficult part is knowing whether or not the injury requires you to seek medical help.

Some common symptoms of a larger neck issue may be:

  • Pain that wakes you from sleep
  • Weakness, tingling, or numbness in the arms or legs

Spine surgeons are the best resource in determining the management options for patient care from conservative non-invasive treatments such as simple exercises to surgical procedures. The goal of our spine surgeons Dr. Goss, Dr. Fox and Dr. Guinand is recovery of joint function.
