What causes neck pain? The neck is a very complex and sensitive area of the body that is fairly easily injured. Car accidents are a top cause of neck injury. Sports injuries, a fall, sleeping in an abnormal position, and too much time spent on a computer or smartphone can all be causes of cervical pain.
Come in for a neck pain diagnosis and let's find the root cause of your pain and treat it without drugs or surgery.
If you’re experiencing neck pain, there are a variety of effective treatments available to you. Our medical clinic offers the most current and advanced pain relief therapies. The doctor will evaluate your condition and answer questions about the treatment options available to you. We can design a custom care plan tailored to your individual needs and help you recover from virtually any condition causing either chronic or acute neck pain.
Neck Pain Relief Treatment
Our clinic offers a variety of treatment options to help relieve your neck pain, including:
Chiropractic care: Adjustments to your cervical vertebrae are gently manipulated with short lever thrusts to help your body heal. Adjustments are performed manually using the hands, or with a specialized tool. Carbon dioxide, nitrogen and oxygen are released from the joints during the adjustment. This help to relieve neck pain and can also restore the body to its natural state of balance, promoting overall health.
Spinal decompression can be particularly effective for neck pain. The doctor will have you lie on a special table that is designed to gently stretch your spine, focusing on the cervical (neck) region.
The procedure relieves pressure on the spinal discs, allowing them to return to their original shape and position. Treatment is usually painless, and patients often report immediate relief of their neck pain.
Trigger point injections are also effective for some types of neck pain. Trigger point injections deliver a natural, plant-based anti-inflammatory agent into a precise point in the affected neck muscle, causing it to relax so that healing can occur more rapidly.
Laser therapy is a painless procedure that focuses a specific wavelength of light on the affected tissue of the neck, stimulating the surrounding cells and increasing blood flow to the area. Both treatments can result in immediate improvements to pain levels.
Regenerative Medicine for Chronic and Severe Neck Injuries
Regenerative medicine is an increasingly popular choice for treating conditions causing severe neck pain.
Regenerative cell therapy involves the injection of tissue containing natural growth factors,young mesenchymal stem cells, cytokines, proteins and more into the affected area of the neck, where they soothe inflammation and enhance the body’s innate ability to heal or replace damaged tissue.
Platelet-rich plasma is a lower cost alternative to stem cell treatment that involves an injection made from concentrated platelets derived from a sample of your blood. The high concentration of growth factors and cytokines present in platelets play a vital role in healing. An injection of platelet-rich plasma into the affected tissues of the neck stimulates the natural healing process and can provide pain relief.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
Our modern lifestyle typically includes an excessive amount of activity that is terrible for our necks. Long days sitting at a desk working on a computer, frequently looking down at our smartphones, and watching television for many hours at a time can all take a toll on our necks and cause a variety of painful problems from headaches to pinched nerves.
