Back and Neck Pain //

Neck Pain Management //
  • Neck pain can occur from the top of your shoulders to the bottom of your head. Neck pain symptoms may be mild to severe and may limit your range of motion.

  • As we age, neck bone and joint pain can be caused by the wear and tear of tissues and joints. Neck muscles can be strained or pulled from poor posture or even from sleeping in an awkward position. Over time, arthritis can also lead to neck pain. Certain injuries can lead to bone and joint pain in the neck, as well as nerve compression in the area, causing one to seek neck pain treatment.​​

  • Neck pain can benefit from several treatment options: 

    • Medication, osteopathy, physical therapy, trigger points injections, acupuncture, cervical epidural injection or facet joint injection.​

    • Bulging discs, disk hernia and sciatica: Spinal discs are soft cushions between vertebra. Sometimes, the soft jellylike substance inside the disc can bulge out of place or rupture, putting pressure on the surrounding nerves causing back pain, leg pain or both.
