Case Report

ABSTRACT Neck pain is a fairly common complaint among patients in the ED. The differential diagnosis is broad, from musculoskeletal causes to potentially life-threatening causes. Providers need to have a good understanding of when the complaint of neck pain requires more diagnostic investigation, even in a patient with chronic neck pain.

Dayna Jaynstein is associate director and an assistant professor in the PA program at Red Rocks Community College in Lakewood, Colo., and practices emergency medicine at Denver Health. The author has disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
