Stingers or burners are a burning or stinging pain, often with some paraesthesia and occasionally weakness, often occurring in impact sports such as rugby or American football.

When your patients present with neck and arm symptoms, how can you differentiate a stinger or burner from a C/sp fracture, discogenic symptoms or nerve root compression, which all require very different treatment?

How should you manage patients with one-off or repeated stingers or burners?

Find out in this podcast with Jo Gibson (Upper Limb Rehabilitation Specialist Physio).
