Neck pain is a complaint commonly encountered in urgent care. Many patients, from a variety of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, will present to an urgent care center with a chief complaint of neck pain and the discomfort can be a debilitating to a patient. It is the provider’s responsibility to appropriately evaluate and manage the condition. UCC’s differ in that they treat all ages of patients, from the very young to the elderly. Clinicians must be able to locate and determine the etiology and severity of the injury in patients with acute neck pain. This is especially true for the very young and geriatric populations. A thorough history and physical examination, and a heightened awareness of any “red flags” that signal a more serious underlying serious condition should be used for treating this population. This systemic approach ensures that medical decisions and treatment options are proper to the individual patient who presents with neck pain.
