What Causes Neck Pain?
Should I see a doctor about my neck pain?
Other incidences when you should make an appointment include:
- Your neck pain is severe or worsens, despite self-care
- Pain doesn’t subside after several days
- A headache accompanies your neck pain
- Neck pain or tingling radiates down into the arms or legs
Treatment depends on the underlying cause of pain and where it originates, so treatment is different for everyone. The providers try to take the most conservative approach that’s effective for you.
Some of the methods our providers use:
- Epidural steroid injections: inject steroids to minimize nerve swelling
- Facet Joint Injections: helps to find and treat the pain
- Nerve blocks: injections of anesthetics to calm nerve activity
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy: injecting your own blood components to promote healing
- Stem cell therapy: injection of stem cells to regenerate tissues
- Many other treatments are also available at the center to address neck pain.
Your doctor can help you find the best path to relief. If you’re dealing with persistent neck pain, it’s time to contact the practice by phoning the office or requesting an appointment online.
