Symptoms of Neck Pain
A Spine Surgeon Talks About Common Neck Pain Symptoms
Dr. Dan Riew, an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in cervical spine conditions, explains the typical symptoms of neck pain—beyond a pain in your neck.
Dr. Riew explains that your pain can radiate; it can travel away from the source of your pain and cause symptoms in other parts of your body. If you have a condition in your cervical spine, you can have symptoms in your arms and hands. It all depends on if and where your nerves are affected as they leave your spinal cord and spinal canal.
Neck pain can come with other symptoms, especially headaches. Dr. Riew discusses this as well.
