Before there was pain
That is why pain is not the best way to know whether or not a joint injury has occurred. In fact when these little position sensing nerves are affected there is a decrease in movement-signals to the brain. When the brain is not getting proper information about joint movement and position (because of a painless spinal joint injury), there is often no way for the patient to know that something is wrong, "I feel fine!" The original underlying injury may have been minor and gone completely unnoticed and yet be causing destructive damage to the ligaments, discs, muscles and nerves of the neck and back.
