: Health Tip: When to Worry About Neck Pain
Posted April 15, 2017
(HealthDay News) -- Neck pain may be caused by an injury or the slow degeneration of discs between the vertebrae. So, when should you see a doctor?
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends an office visit if:
- You have long-lasting pain or stiffness without an obvious injury.
- Your pain becomes severe.
- The pain radiates into the legs or arms.
- Your pain is accompanied by headaches, weakness, tingling or numbness.
