Neck Pain

Common causes of neck pain include infection, joint inflammation, and trauma – such as an accident, cancer, or most commonly, bone spurs or disc herniation. When you come in to see me, one of my first tasks will be to assess what is causing the pain in your neck. From there, we can move forward.  The videos below provide detailed information about the causes of neck pain and when and why someone should get surgery.  If you think that surgery may be a good option for you, feel free to contact your primary care doctor for a referral if required by your insurance company, or contact Kelly directly.
