Most people experience neck pain at some point in their lives and those who have been through it know how disruptive it is to everyday activities. Severe neck pain, especially when caused by a cervical (upper) spine condition like a bulging disc, a herniated disc, cervical stenosis, osteoarthritis or degenerative disc disease, can keep you awake at night or prevent you from turning your head comfortably.

When neck pain becomes unbearable, it’s important to remember that lasting relief is possible. The best place to start is with your primary care doctor for a diagnosis and initial treatment plan.
