Neck pain is a common complaint in general practice. Most causes of neck pain are not serious, but differential diagnosis must be made carefully. Problems of the cervical spine frequently have very similar presentations and can be difficult to differentiate. However, with a careful history, physical examination, imaging studies, and judicious use of diagnostic injections, the true source of a patient's symptoms can be evaluated.Turk J Phys Med Rehab 2010;56 Suppl 1:34-7.
