Frisco Spine Specialist Provides Relief for Neck Pain

spine painWhether they are slouching over a desk or experiencing degenerative arthritis symptoms or recovering from a neck injury, many people know what it’s like to suffer from neck pain. Ongoing neck pain may be one type of problem while occasional neck pain may mean there is a more serious, underlying cause. At The Neuro & Spine Wellness Center, we specialize in treating and relieving your neck pain, no matter what the cause.

What causes neck pain?

Because of its location at the upper end of the spinal column and the base of the skull, your neck (also known as the cervical spine) is essential to your ability to move comfortably. The vertebrae in your neck are linked by muscles, ligaments and nerves that make it very susceptible to injury and a variety of different disorders. Neck problems can also cause problems and pain in the upper back, shoulders and arms.

Potential causes of neck pain include:

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Disc Degeneration
  • Degenerative Spine Conditions
  • Strained or Sprained Muscles
  • Trauma to the Neck Area
  • Tumors or Infections
  • Bad Posture Creating Stress on the Vertebrae
  • Joint or Bone Abnormalities

If you suffer from continuing or severe neck pain, especially after trauma or injury, our spine specialists recommend immediate medical attention. Other serious indications include pain shooting down your arms and legs, and radiating numbness or weakness even when there is no significant neck pain.
