What causes neck pain?
Neck pain can result from a variety of soft-tissue problems in the muscles, ligaments and nerves as well as in the bones and joints of the spine. Common causes of neck pain are traumatic injury, herniated discs and arthritis.
Spinal discs act as shock absorbers between the spinal vertebrae. If the spongy, gelatin-like center of a spinal disc degenerates and narrows the space between the vertebrae, pain results.
Auto accidents can cause cervical whiplash flexion and extensions of the spine beyond its normal limits. We use steroid injections, nerve blocks and radiofrequency ablation for these conditions. These treatments and therapies help people with neck-related conditions such as:
- Low back pain
- Pinched nerves
- Muscle spasms
- Postural pain
- Stiffness (lost mobility)
- Radiating pain
So if your neck pain does not resolve itself within several days, don’t live with the pain or lost function.
