What causes neck pain?
As with any area of the body that experiences pain, there are many different reasons a person could develop pain in the neck.Some of the most common reasons a person will experience pain in their neck include poor posture, nerve compression, accidents sustained in an automobile accident, arthritis or other disease, and repetitive stress or wear on the joints.
How can I reduce my neck pain at home?
Maintaining good posture throughout the day is an essential step when you are trying to reduce your neck pain. This may include adjusting your work space so the computer is level with your eyes and taking frequent breaks when you are sitting at a computer for many hours at work. You may also choose to avoid carrying heavy bags that can strain your neck and avoid talking with your phone tucked between your ear and shoulder. Maintaining proper alignment when you sleep can also improve your daily neck comfort.
What is “text neck?”
Text neck is a relatively new phenomenon that can cause chronic pain in the neck. It is a repetitive stress injury that is caused by excessive use of handheld devices. While tilting your head forward to look at your phone may not seem like a big deal, even a slight change of your cervical alignment can add tens of pounds of force to your neck. Overuse of handheld devices can cause pain, muscle weakness, headache, and stiffness in the neck.
How will you diagnose my neck pain?
At Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, our pain management doctors provide personalized attention and care, so you receive an exact diagnosis. Your doctor will perform a physical exam to determine whether there is any tenderness or muscle weakness in your neck. Additionally, they will check for any numbness that could be a sign of a nerve damage and evaluate your range of motion. X-ray imaging, CAT scans, or MRIs may also be used to look for anatomic or structural problems. Your doctor may use electromyography (EMG) to determine whether your neck pain is the result of a pinched nerve.
What treatments are available for neck pain?
Depending on your condition, your treatment plan could include physical therapy, short-term immobilization, medication management, or use of a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) device.Facet joint injections using corticosteroid medications can also help reduce chronic neck pain. At Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, your treatment will be determined by your individual needs. We believe in taking a comprehensive and personalized approach to our patients’ care.
