Author information

  • 1Neurological Institute, University Hospitals, Case Medical Center, Cleveland, OH 44106, USA.


Neck pain is less common than low back pain but still a relatively common reason for seeing a primary care physician. Therefore, it is necessary for the primary care physician to be comfortable with salient points in the history and to be able to perform a basic neurologic examination. Important aspects of the history and physical examination are reviewed. Important clinical syndromes and treatment options are also reviewed.
