(HealthDay News) -- Neck pain may be caused by an injury or the slow degeneration of discs between the vertebrae. So, when should you see a doctor?
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends an office visit if:
You have long-lasting pain or stiffness without an obvious injury.
Your pain becomes severe.
The pain radiates into the legs or arms.
Your pain is accompanied by headaches, weakness, tingling or numbness.
