When Do I Seek Medical Attention?
Suffering from chronic neck pain? Neck pain is no fun and has many causes, including falling and auto accidents. Neck pain or neck stiffness can even be due to bad posture or overuse. Most of the time, neck pain can be relieved in a matter of a few days after the correct pain treatments are conducted.
There is a wide variety of symptoms you might experience if you are dealing with neck pain. Sometimes you experience pain from sleeping the wrong way from the night before, or it can be so painful that an individual avoids excessive movements with the neck.
If your neck pain does not go away on its own within a few days, it may be because there is an underlying problem. You should seek medical assistance immediately if you are experiencing any of the following along with your neck pain:
- Arm pain
- Leg pain
- Numbness, or tingling in arms or legs
- Loss of coordination
If you received your neck injury from a car accident or if you were injured at work, it will be treated as a medical emergency. The patient should be immobilized by a medical professional immediately to reduce the risk of paralysis.
