Neck Pain Q&A
Why do I have neck pain?
Neck pain may start for many reasons, with the most common culprits being:
- Spinal stenosis
- Cervical disc herniation
- Degenerative disc disease
- Muscle strains
- Sports injuries
- Auto accidents
Most causes of neck pain occur with either age-related degeneration or accidents, but other factors can contribute as well.
For example, constantly craning your neck to use the phone can disrupt the muscle balance in your cervical spine, leading to neck pain. Or, something as simple as sleeping in the wrong position can cause serious neck pain upon awakening.
Many other factors, ranging from stress to poor posture and extra weight, can contribute to neck pain, as well.
How is neck pain diagnosed?
The interdisciplinary team at Advanced Wellness Center uses a whole toolbox of techniques to diagnose your neck pain and find its root cause. You’ll have a neck exam, along with a general spinal exam encompassing your whole back.
In most cases, diagnostic imaging tests are important in neck pain cases because they can show spinal misalignment and other vertebral problems while ruling out issues like bone fractures.
What is the best treatment for neck pain?
Neck pain treatment usually involves a customized blend of noninvasive and nonsurgical treatment approaches. Based on the cause of your neck pain and the symptoms you’re experiencing, the providers at Advanced Wellness Center may recommend some of the following therapies for your neck pain.
- Physical therapy
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Nonsurgical spinal decompression
- Vibration therapy
- Rapid release technology
- Medical massage therapy
- Neck bracing
- SoftWave therapy
- Regenerative medicine, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
- Sarapin trigger point injections
Because neck pain and headaches often occur in tandem, Advanced Wellness Center also offers a variety of solutions to treat migraines and other headaches using a variety of disciplines.
Neck pain treatment at Advanced Wellness Center always emphasizes natural alternatives that work just as well or better than medication and invasive procedures. For example, Sarapin is a plant-based injectable substance that’s a great alternative to corticosteroids for trigger points in the neck.
