Neck Pain Treatments

Anyone who has ever struggled with neck pain (whether from a pinched nerve, a sprain or strain, or arthritis) understands how debilitating it can be. You may feel as though you have lost total control of your upper body, even though the pain is limited to your neck.

For acute injury sufferers, you may spend the days counting down the time until your neck is back in tip-top shape; however, this type of thinking provides little in the way of hope for chronic neck pain sufferers.

Fortunately, the Advanced Relief Institute offers several forms of interventional pain management to help provide comfort.

What Causes Neck Pain?

The neck is a delicate structure that requires as much attention as any other body part. The cervical spine (neck region) is made up of seven cervical vertebrae that are connected by and cushioned by discs, spinal joints, and ligaments. These vertebrae and discs allow the neck to twist, and they protect your spinal cord.

The neck muscles connect numerous anatomical areas and ensure that different neuromuscular functions work, such as mobility, stability, and connection of the central nervous system (CNS) to the neck. For these to function correctly, the neck must be in good health.

Unfortunately, when something happens to these vertebrae or discs, the pain can be debilitating and prevent you from enjoying everyday activities, playing sports, or even going to work.

Most neck pain is muscle-related, including muscle tension, cramps, and strains. The pain may be limited to the neck or branch out to the shoulders and arms. While there are many causes of neck pain, it is often caused by the compression of the spinal nerves.

Common neck pain symptoms can include problems bending or rotating the neck, muscle spasms, headaches, shoulder pain, or numbness and tingling in the arms, hands, or shoulders.

What Are Some At-Home Strategies for Managing Neck Pain?

Many men and women who experience acute or chronic neck pain first turn to at-home strategies for managing pain.

This usually involves therapies such as over-the-counter pain relievers (like aspirin, ibuprofen, or acetaminophen), ice or heat applications, neck massages, using a firmer pillow/mattress, and avoidance of strenuous activity (like jogging, weightlifting, and racquet sports).

Physical therapy may be recommended.
