Pain in and around the neck is a relatively common condition. This pain can be caused by a number of medical conditions, such as neck strain and injury, herniated discs, pinched nerves, and infections to name a few. Just as there are many conditions associated with neck pain, there are many treatment options as well.
Middle back pain treatments vary by condition. To begin to determine what treatment options are right for you, answer these simple questions:

- Does your condition prevent your from daily tasks?
- Have other treatments provided relief?
The answers to these questions will help Dr. Chappell begin to diagnosis the severity of your conditions.
