Chronic neck pain is one of the most common causes of treatment for patients. Today, sedentary life and increased obesity in general, cause an increase in the frequency of chronic back and neck pain. Successful treatment of chronic neck pain, which may arise from many different structures, requires the use of imaging methods as well as good anamnesis and physical therapy of the patient. Correct detection of the cause of pain is the most important parameter that increases the success of targeted treatments. If neck pain does not respond to conservative treatments and becomes chronic, interventional methods are used. These methods which may have serious complications, should be performed in developed centers and by experienced teams, following a multidisciplinary study.
