You’re not alone if you’re experiencing neck pain. Muscle strain is common if you spend too much time hunched over a computer or messaging from your device. In most cases, however, neck pain isn’t a serious medical issue and you may be able to get relief from your pain by modifying your workspace, taking breaks, and stretching your tired muscles.
If you can’t get relief from your neck pain after making a few modifications to your daily activities or your neck pain is severe, then it’s time to contact the team at NeuroSpinecare. Other neck pain symptoms that warrant a visit to the experienced pain management team include:
You also need an evaluation if your neck pain is a result of an injury, such as a car accident or sports injury.
The team at NeuroSpinecare conducts comprehensive examinations when you come to the office with complaints of neck pain. The goal of the examination is to identify the underlying cause of your pain, which is used to develop your personalized treatment plan.
During your evaluation, the team reviews your symptoms and medical history and conducts a physical exam, paying special attention to the structure and function of your neck.
To confirm or rule out a suspected diagnosis, the team may request diagnostic testing, such as X-rays, MRIs, or nerve conduction studies.
Treatment for your neck pain may depend on the underlying cause. Initially, the team may take a conservative approach to care and recommend anti-inflammatory medication and physical therapy. Depending on the cause of your neck pain, joint injections may also be recommended.
If needed the team at NeuroSpinecare includes an experienced neurosurgeon who can perform any necessary neck surgery with great care. Neck surgery may be needed to relieve root nerve pain or spinal cord compression.
Neck pain is common, but if your at-home treatment isn’t relieving your soreness, the experienced team at NeuroSpinecare, Inc. can develop a plan to relieve your discomfort. Contact the office by phone or online today to schedule your consultation.
