Unraveling the Mystery of Cervical Pain
For millions of people, chronic neck pain is a serious and frequently debilitating problem. Often conventional treatments are of limited help, with medication providing only temporary relief. In this presentation, Dr. Benjamin will discuss the single most common cause of cervical pain: central ligament sprains (including whiplash injuries). You'll learn about the relevant anatomy, assessment tests, and effective treatment techniques that can reduce, prevent, and eliminate severe and chronic neck pain.
