Burners and Stingers - Dr. Michael Cushing MD

Injury to the nerves of the neck and shoulders that cause a burning or stinging feeling down the arm are called burners or stingers. This injury is most commonly seen in football players, but is also seen in wrestlers, cheerleaders, gymnasts, and other sports. More than 50% of college football players report having at least one stinger in their careers.

Cameron Walker

My name is Cameron Walker. I am a proud member of the Newnan Cougar Football Team. When I injured my knee I immediately came to Georgia Bone & Joint. The physicians and the staff at Georgia Bone & Joint are part of our Cougar Family. They are always there for us.
