The neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. The cervical spine supports the full weight of your head which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.

Sciatica is characterized by pain in the lower back that radiates down one or both legs. The pain is described as dull, achy, sharp, like “pins and needles” or similar to electric shocks. Other symptoms associated with sciatica include burning, numbness and tingling sensations. Sciatic nerve pain varies in intensity from mild to severe, and frequency may range from occasional to constant. The onset is generally gradual and not necessarily associated with a previous event. Sciatica is also known as radiating or referred pain, neuropathy, or neuralgia.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a complicated condition that is not yet fully understood. CRPS is chronic pain that usually continues after a seemingly minor injury, but the pain is not in proportion with the original injury. CRPS often affects the arms or legs and you may feel like the arm or leg is persistently in pain for no reason at all. The pain may be localized to one of the limbs or seem to “jump” from limb to limb.
