Neck Pain “Cervicalgia” (Cervical Epidural)
Sharp and chronic neck pain, which does not radiate outward, are symptoms of cervicalgia. The pain may remain constant or progress into more debilitating conditions such as osteoarthritis. An effective pain management technique for cervicalgia is a cervical epidural, where medications are injected in the cervical area of the spine.
