Neck Pain Q&A
What causes neck pain?
Neck pain is extraordinarily common and has many potential causes. Neck pain can start in the muscles, connective tissue, bones, or nerves. SEPA Pain & Spine offers treatments to relieve neck pain caused by:
- Sprains and strains
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Radiculopathy (nerve impingement)
- Cervical facet syndrome
- Injuries, including whiplash
- Myofascial pain syndrome
While your family medical history contributes to your risk of many painful neck problems, your lifestyle is also a significant influence.
For example, the average American spends more than five hours a day with their head tilted down to scroll through their phone. Tilting your head puts significant stress on the vertebra, muscles, and connective tissue in your neck, causing pain and increasing your risk of injury.
When should I talk to a doctor about neck pain?
You should make an appointment at SEPA Pain & Spine if you have persistent or severe neck pain that interferes with your life. If your neck pain lasts for more than a couple of days or limits your movement, make an appointment right away.
You should also seek medical care if your neck pain radiates into your arms or causes numbness or muscle weakness. A medical professional should also evaluate and treat neck pain combined with headaches.
How is neck pain treated?
SEPA Pain & Spine offers a comprehensive range of interventional pain management options for neck pain, including:
Your provider may prescribe anti-inflammatory medicine, muscle relaxants, or other medications to relieve neck pain.
Physical therapy helps you improve your strength and flexibility, addressing imbalances and weaknesses that contribute to neck pain. You may also work on posture correction to reduce stress on your cervical spine.
You may benefit from a spinal injection to relieve swelling and reduce nerve compression in your cervical spine. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell spinal injections may also support your healing process.
Trigger point injections
If your neck pain is due to a trigger point or muscle spasm in your neck or upper back, a trigger point injection may relieve your pain.
Sympathetic and peripheral nerve blocks stop pain signals and can relieve neurologic neck pain.
Radiofrequency ablation creates a small lesion on a nerve that blocks pain signals.
Spinal cord stimulation
SEPA Pain & Spine offers spinal cord stimulators when other treatments do not relieve pain. The device sends a mild electrical current into your spine to disrupt pain signals.
