The class takes places at TMCA every Thursday from 10 a.m. to noon in meeting room 1.
We recommend patients take this class at least two weeks prior to surgery. You are encouraged to bring family members and/or caregivers who will be involved in your care after surgery.
Orthopedic neck treatment
Acute neck pain can be brought on by traumatic injuries sustained in a car accident or sporting injury. These types of injuries should be immediately immobilized and seen by a doctor. If your neck pain is ongoing for several weeks or increasingly becomes worse (radiating down through your arms or legs or accompanied by headaches), you should be seen by an orthopedic neck specialist.
Our orthopedic neck specialists offer treatment for neck arthritis, cervical spine deformities, chronic neck pain, herniated discs, neck fractures/sprains and whiplash.
