Dispelling Myths About Neck Pain

On Tuesday, April 8, 2008 a webinar was held where Dr. Scott Haldeman discussed the myths and misconceptions about neck pain. A number of media outlets attended the webinar and expressed interest. The presentation is approximately 40 minutes in length.

A project begun in 2000 at the start of the decade, the findings of the Bone and Joint Decade Task Force (BJD) on Neck Pain and Its Associated Disorders were published in the journal Spine (1.18.08) and are already impacting the manner in which neck pain is perceived, treated and studied around the world.
