Neck Pain Q & A

Why do I have neck pain?

Most adults struggle with neck pain at some point in life. Whether your neck pain is a recent development or has been bothering you for years, it’s important to find out what the cause is so your condition doesn’t get worse. Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:

  • Spinal stenosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle strains
  • Herniated disc
  • Whiplash injury
  • Slipped disc
  • Poor posture
  • Rheumatoid or osteoarthritis

If left untreated, neck pain can become so severe that it starts impacting your daily routine and sleep habits. Before your neck pain starts affecting your quality of life, schedule an evaluation with the experts at Metro Pain and Vein Centers.

Do I need to see a doctor for neck pain?

Ideally, you’d see your dedicated pain specialist at the first sign of neck discomfort. If your neck pain is associated with any of these issues below, book an exam right away:

  • Pain, numbness, or tingling in your arm
  • Severe headaches
  • Muscle weakness or spasms
  • Pain that radiates to your lower back or legs

Because neck pain could be a sign of a soft tissue injury, like a ligament or muscle tear, don’t try to treat the condition on your own. The team at Metro Pain and Vein Centers offers plenty of effective solutions to resolve agonizing neck pain.

How is neck pain treated?

Treating neck pain depends on what’s causing it, so chances are, you’re going to need digital X-rays, ultrasound imaging, or blood work to get a comprehensive diagnosis. Once your pain specialist at Metro Pain and Vein Centers determines the cause, they can design your treatment plan, which can include:

  • Trigger point injections
  • Muscle relaxants or painkillers
  • Cortisone or epidural injections
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation

Your plan may also involve physical therapy. The exercises you perform during physical therapy sessions are designed to improve flexibility in your neck joints, build muscle strength, and heal soft tissues.
