Neck Pain Relief
Muscles, tendons, nerves and the cervical spine can all contribute to neck pain. When neck pain becomes chronic, it can interfere with your quality of life and make completing everyday tasks difficult. At Medici Spine & Pain, we help patients suffering from chronic neck pain by identifying the source of the pain and creating an effective, non-invasive treatment plan to give them relief.
Causes of Chronic Neck Pain
The cervical spine, musculoskeletal and nerve system in the neck are vulnerable to damage. The neck has very little support and carries a heavy load. A wide variety of factors can be involved when chronic pain stems from the neck area. Some of these include:
- Repetitive motion or positioning (text neck, workplace injuries)
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Pinched nerve (cervical radiculopathy)
- Cervical spondylosis, bone spurs or osteoarthritis
- Whiplash or other neck injuries
There can be so many different causes of neck pain, that it may be difficult to diagnose. In many cases, there is not a “mechanical” issue that can be identified, but there may be inflammation or other issues impacting the nerves. Diagnostic testing and injection treatments help determine the likely cause of neck pain to formulate an effective treatment plan for long-term relief.
Treatments for Neck Pain
Our medical team at Medici Spine & Pain uses a multidisciplinary approach for treating chronic neck pain. We begin with the diagnostic process to pinpoint the source of pain and offer various conservative treatments for relief. Our non-invasive methods include injections, myofascial release, physical therapy and medication management. If there are mechanical issues in the cervical spine causing chronic neck pain, and the patient does not respond to conservative treatments, we may recommend minimally-invasive endoscopic spine surgery.
