Has this condition been treated appropriately by an orthopedic specialist? Cervical dislocation is a condition in which the cervical bone shifts from its normal position, which is generally caused by injuries such as motor vehicle accidents, sports accidents, or falls. Symptoms that can be experienced by sufferers are pain in the neck area, pain that radiates to the arm, tingling or numbness in the arm or hand, weakness in the arm, and upper body stiffness. If a person experiences a cervical dislocation, this condition must be treated immediately so as not to cause further health problems. After experiencing a dislocation of the cervical vertebrae, the patient is not recommended to move the neck until further examination by a doctor. Usually the doctor will use a neck bone brace to keep the patient's neck not moving then the doctor will do a physical examination and further examinations such as x-rays, CT scans, or MRI. From this examination the doctor will determine the next treatment. If it is found only dislocation, the doctor will take action to improve the position of the spine with certain maneuvers. If this action does not work, the doctor will improve the position of the spine with surgery. After this procedure the doctor will usually still recommend the use of a neck bone brace for some time. During this healing period, sufferers can do simple stretches of the muscles of the neck, shoulders and upper arms and should not do strenuous exercise. Sufferers can consult with a medical rehabilitation specialist for further examination. The doctor needs to know which muscles are affected by this dislocation and will determine what exercises or stretches the muscles can do. Before returning to normal activities including exercise, sufferers are encouraged to consult with an orthopedic specialist to ensure the condition of the neck bones are good.
