Nearly two-thirds of the American population will experience neck pain at some point in their lives. Did you know that it is the third most common type of pain suffered in this country? * Neck pain can become severe enough to interfere with everyday activities and make basic movements (such as sitting or turning the head) impossible.

Some of the pain you feel may be associated with neck pain without you evening realizing it. Neck pain can cause many different symptoms that affect other parts of your body, like the head, arms, back, and muscles. Because of the strain neck pain puts on your body and the nerves that it affects this pain can trigger symptoms such as headache, inability to grasp items properly, stiffness, and many others.

Are you experiencing any of these or the following symptoms of neck pain, if so contact our neck pain clinic and speak with one of our caring staff about a free consultation. They will be able to assess your specific needs and discuss your treatment options, getting you back on the path to a life without neck pain.

Symptoms of neck pain may include any of the following but not limited to:

  •     Headaches
  •     Numbness or tingling in the fingers, hand, or forearm
  •     Stiffness and compromised range of motion
  •     Pain that spreads down the arm or to the upper back and shoulders
  •     Muscle weakness

While there are many different symptoms of neck pain, there are just as many if not more causes. Neck pain is generally caused by strain to your neck or surrounding area. This stress can be caused by poor posture, daily stress, misalignments of the spine, accidents, among many others. Another frequent cause of neck pain is herniated disks that cause pressure on the nerves. This pressure causes the signals in your spine to be off, which can, in turn, cause the pain that you are feeling.

Causes of neck pain may also be caused by:

  •     poor posture
  •     a misalignment of the spine
  •     auto accident injuries (including whiplash)
  •     sports injuries
  •     workplace trauma
  •     arthritis
  •     degenerative disc disease
  •     herniated discs
  •     spinal stenosis
  •     obesity
  •     or emotional issues such as stress

No matter the cause of the pain, you are probably searching for a way to ease it. While it is tempting to take a painkiller and go about your day, this is not going to help the cause of the pain. It will reduce or even eliminate the pain for some time, and then it will return. The issue with masking the pain with painkillers is that you risk injuring your neck further. For this reason, a holistic approach is preferred.

Taking a holistic approach to your neck pain means that you use one or a combination of many treatments to address the underlying cause of the pain. This could include chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, massage, rehabilitative treatment, and many others. You have many choices for pain management and treatment, that does not have to include surgery, extensive medications, or more stress. Contact our neck pain clinic to see what we can do to help relieve your neck pain.

As you can see by our patient in this video; neck pain doesn’t have to be part of your everyday life.  For a FREE consultation so we can assess the symptoms and develop a treatment plan utilizing the best disciplinary approach suited to your situation, call us at 732-365-0301 or fill out a form to schedule an appointment on our website.

Neck Pain and Medical Care

Physicians that are specialists in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (Physiatrists) are an excellent option for those suffering from neck pain. Physiatrists provide a non-surgical, moderate, and effective approach that helps neck pain patients avoid unnecessary, aggressive, and often expensive pain management strategies. They can also help patients seeking to avoid the damaging use of both over-the-counter and prescription painkillers.

Physiatrists often act as the head of a team of pain management practitioners. At Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation, our Medical Director oversees a number of pain management techniques. When visiting our office for Neck Pain in Shrewsbury, Freehold, Wall, or Lacey NJ we provide a full diagnostic process, a comprehensive pain management plan is customized for each patient that may include physical therapy, Spinal Decompression Tractions; chiropractic; and acupuncture.

Spinal Injections, Fluoroscopy, and Neck Pain

In some cases, neck pain is so severe that patients are unable to participate in physical therapy or other rehabilitative practices. In this case, Physiatrists may recommend the use of spinal injections. The purpose of this tactic is to end the cycle of pain and inflammation that is impeding the body’s natural ability to heal.

Some injections, in particular, Epidural Steroid Injections, are performed with the use of a Fluoroscope, imaging technology that allows the doctor to view the affected body part in real time. The Fluoroscope is used to guide the needle into the proper position before the injection is given. This practice increases the effectiveness and precision of Epidural Steroid Injections, which are generally used for any type of disorder in which pain is caused by the inflammation of spinal nerves.

Trigger Point Injections are also used for neck pain relief. This is an injection of an anesthetic/cortisone combination that may be given in the muscles, ligaments, or other soft tissues of the spine. Trigger Point Injections help to alleviate muscles spasms that are sometimes the cause of neck pain.
