NECK PAIN & STIFFNESS (Spondylosis or Spondylitis)

Neck pain is pain that starts in the neck with or without restricted movement and can be associated with radiating pain down one or both of the arms. Neck pain can come from a number of disorders or diseases that involve any of the tissues in the neck, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments or muscles.
