Neck and arm pain can really be debilitating especially when your job or lifestyle is physically demanding. Time and employments are lost when such pain gets to you. This types of pain can either involve nerve loss or not. If there are no nerve malfunctions, a patient may resort to cervical traction, manipulation, analgesics, or cervical collars. If ever the pain still lasts for about four to six weeks, then there is already a need for further diagnostic exams like CT scan, discography, myelography, and MRI to really find out what is wrong.
