Neck Pain

Are You Suffering From Chronic Neck Pain?

When I first began treatment at Advanced Health and Physical Medicine, the pain in my back was excruciating! Now after my 2 month treatment plan, I am able to turn from side to side without a problem. The entire staff is great, also!!!

When I came my pain was at a level 9. After receiving my first treatment I could see a big difference. As I continued my treatments for the next few weeks I could feel that I was improving each day. I am now in my third week and my pain level is at a 2. As I continued my treatments I know that I will be pain free. Thanks to Advanced Health and its staff.

More than just a pain in the neck

Most of the time, neck pain is nothing more than an occasional nuisance. Though extremely unpleasant, it usually goes away on its own with proper rest for the next few days. But when the pain is intense, or when it keeps on coming back, you may have something more serious that requires proper medical treatment.

Since our neck is where our spine begins, problems that originate there can affect other parts of your body. Untreated neck pain can trigger a variety of serious secondary symptoms such as: headaches, shoulder pain, backaches, and even numbness in your hands, arms, back, and legs.

Severe and chronic neck pain can be caused by a variety of circumstances. The leading causes of neck pain are:

  • Muscle strain—this can happen by moving your neck the wrong way, prolonged hunching at your desk, and even while reading in your bed
  • Degenerating joints—this is usually a combination of advancing age and a progressive condition like osteoarthritis of degenerative disc disease
  • Compressed or injured nerves—nerves can get pinched due to injury, muscle knots, or progressive conditions like degenerative disc disease
  • Injuries—car accidents, sports, and workplaces are the most common sources
  • Disease/progressive conditions—this includes meningitis, osteoarthritis, cancer, and disc degenerative disease

How do I know if I should get treatment for my neck pain?

Nobody wants to waste time and money by going to a doctor when they don’t need to. There’s no need to panic at the first instance of pain, given how often benign neck pain occurs. However, you don’t want to make things worse (and more expensive down the road) by brushing off your symptoms either. Your neck pain may require immediate medical treatment if:

  • The pain has lasted more than a few days
  • The pain refuses to dissipate or is getting worse
  • You are feeling weakness, numbness, or tingling at your neck or other parts of your body
  • You experience dizziness and loss of bowel and bladder control
  • If you can’t move a part of your body
  • If the pain is intense enough to wake you from sleep
  • If the pain occurs with chest pain, nausea, or shortness of breath

Though neck pain is usually a temporary inconvenience, it’s important to pay attention to your symptoms to make sure that you’re not ignoring anything serious. Even pain that is not that severe can be a sign of an urgent condition if it keeps on recurring.
