Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

Neck pain is one of the most common types of pain both men and women have. Your neck pain may stem from trauma, such as whiplash from a car accident. Plus, if you had a previous whiplash injury and never had it properly treated, discomfort may linger on for months or even years.

But injuries aren’t the only cases of neck pain. Your discomfort may also be a sign of:

  • Nerve issues
  • Herniated disc
  • Bone spur
  • Muscle strain
  • Worn joints, as with osteoarthritis

You might even have neck pain because of your posture. For instance, if you regularly slouch or lean over in your chair, you may experience neck pain on an ongoing basis. 

When should I get treatment for neck pain?

Advanced Pain Management welcomes you to come in for an evaluation whether you have minor or occasional neck pain, or neck pain that’s so severe it keeps you up at night. You need to have a neck pain evaluation if you have any of the following issues:

  • Numbness or tingling in your extremities
  • Limited range of motion 
  • Neck stiffness or soreness
  • Muscle spasms

You should also come in to Advanced Pain Management if you have neck pain that worsens when you have to hold your head in certain positions for long periods, as with sitting at your desk. The team provides on-site imaging, so your doctor can quickly get to the root of why you have neck pain. 

How does a doctor treat neck pain?

Once your doctor better understands why you have neck pain, they talk with you about your condition and which treatment options may be most effective. Common neck pain treatments from Advanced Pain Management include:

  • Stem cell therapy
  • Epidural injection
  • Facet joint injection
  • Medial branch block
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Sacroiliac joint injection 
  • Transforaminal epidural injection 

While the primary goal of your neck pain treatment from Advanced Pain Management is, of course, pain relief, prevention is also important. Your doctor counsels you about changes you can make to your daily routine — like how to improve your posture — to lower your chances of further issues with neck pain.
