Many neck injuries result in nerve damage in the cervical spine. The cervical spine and its surrounding tissues are a complex network that helps control multiple functions in your body including sensation and motor skills in your arms and hands. Nerve injuries feel like pins and needles or the sensation of your hand "falling asleep." It is important to seek medical treatment right away to determine if you have injured a nerve in your neck. Please call or email Jason Krasno if you need a referral to a qualified physician who treats neck injuries.
