NECK PAIN

Neck Pain

Neck pain is a common complaint for many people. Most patients complain of localized tenderness in their neck and increased pain by movement.

 

Causes:

The most common causes of neck pain include: muscle strain, arthritis, disc disease, infection and cancer.

Neck pain usually responds to massage, physical therapy and relaxation technique. If pain lasts longer than a week with no improvement, you should contact your doctor. If pain is associated with fever, headache and stiffness in your neck, you should immediately contact your doctor.

Testing:

Physical examination is the first step to assess the cause of your pain. Your doctor may order X-ray, MRI, or nerve conduction studies to find out the exact source of your pain. Your doctor may also order blood tests and a spinal tap.

Treatment:

Over the counter medication such as Ibuprofen, Naproxen and Acetaminophen may be recommended. Muscle relaxers and antidepressants may be helpful as well. Other treatment options for neck pain may include:

In certain cases you may also benefit from surgery. Our providers will refer you to a surgeon if it is medically necessary.
