Neck Pain Treatment and Severe Pain Relief at Metro Pain and Vein Centers

At Metro Pain And Vein Centers, we’re committed to providing our patients with the best that medical advancements and procedures can offer. By using the latest equipment and thorough examination, we provide reliable and quick diagnoses for the causes of neck pain and recommend effective and long-term solutions.

Most cases of neck pain can be easily explained by poor posture, age, or overuse. In these situations, neck pain treatments consist of bed rest, at-home remedies, or some medication if the patient needs it. But for cases of chronic, severe, or sudden neck pain, professional examination and treatment is the only way to ensure that it gets addressed.

If you’re looking for help with acute or chronic neck pain, call us today for a consultation. Our board-certified medical experts and neck pain specialists can provide you the relief that you’re looking for.

Diagnose The Symptoms And Causes Of Neck Pain With Metro Pain And Vein Centers

Neck pain is characterized by discomfort or pain around the neck, which can worsen with activity or movement over time. It can also manifest in stiffness or increased sensitivity, which can be aggravated by certain behaviors or movements.

There are several causes of neck pain, some of which are more common than others:

 

  • Poor posture: long hours of sitting or lying down can cause muscle tension and muscle strain on your neck
  • Injury: contact sports, household activities, and accidents can all cause a neck strain, neck sprain, or whiplash that can affect the cervical spine area
  • Meningitis: Inflammation of the membranes along your spinal cord and brain can also cause neck pain alongside other symptoms
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: painful swelling of the joints around the neck area, usually causing excess spinal cord stimulation
  • Spinal stenosis: pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves along your back, usually caused by inflammation
  • Disc injury: a herniated disc (a ruptured disc or a slipped disc) can cause pressure on the nerve roots
  • Fibromyalgia: chronic muscle pain, usually around the neck and shoulder region

Effective Neck Pain Treatment and Long-Term Pain Relief at Metro Pain and Vein Centers

Once the underlying cause of your neck pain has been identified, a physical therapist or spine specialist can recommend several options you can consider for neck pain treatment:

  • Over-the-counter (OTC) medications: OTC medication coupled with bed rest is one of the most common treatment options for neck pain and is effective in most cases of acute pain.
  • Neck brace or neck collar: This treatment can be combined with physical therapy with the advice of orthopedic specialists. This treatment is common if you've had neck surgery since it can help avoid nerve compression.
  • Steroid injections: Cortisone can relieve inflammation that can be pushing vertebrae on the spine and cause pain signals to occur. An epidural steroid injection can also help with persistent neck pain because an epidural injection can relieve a pinched nerve anywhere in the spinal column.

We make sure to provide personalized care and treatment for patients who suffer from:

Neck Arthritis

Also known as Cervical Spondylosis, this condition is the wear and tear in the uppermost part of the spine. It’s common in older patients, causing them to feel pain and stiffness in their necks.

Neck Injuries

These injuries are usually caused by different factors like accidents or spinal conditions. Make sure to get the right diagnosis from a board-certified doctor to find the appropriate treatment for your neck injury.

Neck Injuries Treatments

Cervical Herniated Discs

This occurs when one of the cushions or spinal discs in the neck or upper back is damaged. It causes the inner nucleus of the disc to leak and push into the nearest nerve roots.

Cervical Spinal Stenosis

This condition occurs when the spinal canal starts narrowing around the neck, causing patients to experience numbness, tingling, and pain.

FAQs About Neck Pain Treatments

Q: Can pain medication manage neck pain on its own?

A: Pain medication can help with the symptoms of neck pain, but it's not going to be enough to address its cause. Unless it's been recommended by your doctor, you should never rely on pain medication alone to manage neck pain.

Q: Is surgery the only way to permanently remove neck pain?

A: Neck surgery only works as a last resort when all other methods for alleviating neck pain have failed. Most non-surgical treatments and procedures can keep neck pain under control, and pose less risk to your body long-term.

Q: Can neck pain be cured with at-home remedies?

A: Topical ointments, essential oils, and other folk remedies have shown limited use in improving the symptoms of neck relief, but they don't address the cause of the neck pain at all. They're excellent things to add if you want a relaxing environment while you recover from neck pain, but they should never be considered as a primary method of treatment.
