By on February 9, 2010

Neck pain can be caused by a simple injury or strain, or a more serious health problem.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says here are signals that your neck pain should be evaluated by a doctor:

  • When it’s severely painful.
  • When it doesn’t let up over time.
  • When it shoots down the arms and legs, in addition to the neck.
  • When it’s accompanied by headache, weakness, a tingling sensation or numbness.
