Neck pain

Symptoms include stiffness, limited range of motion, headaches, or even radiating pain into the shoulders, arms, and hands.

Neck pain causes discomfort or soreness in the cervical region of the spine, which encompasses the seven vertebrae that support the neck.

It can vary from mild to severe and may be accompanied by stiffness, limited range of motion, headaches, or even radiating pain into the shoulders, arms, or hands.

We might also suggest exercises, stretches, or changes to your daily habits to help you feel better and prevent future pain. The goal is to get your neck back in shape, improve how it works, and make sure you feel good overall.

So, if you're dealing with neck pain, our specialists could be a helpful option to consider!

Common questions

You can develop neck pain from an acute injury, poor posture, or an underlying degenerative condition. Common causes of neck pain include:

  • Herniated disc
  • Sprains and strains
  • Arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease (DDD)

Poor posture is a common cause of acute neck pain that may lead to chronic pain. Spending hours of your day looking down at a smartphone, tablet, or computer strains the neck and causes joint dysfunction.

You should seek help for neck pain at Key Spine Care if your pain occurs after an accident, is an ongoing problem, or your symptoms are getting worse over time.

The PSP at Key Spine Care serves as your primary provider for your neck pain. They conduct a thorough evaluation to find the cause of your discomfort and develop a treatment plan to relieve your symptoms without the need for additional tests or referrals to specialists.

The PSP, however, can also easily identify patients who need X-rays, CT scans, or an MRI, as well as referrals to spine surgeons. The PSP ensures you get only the care absolutely necessary to improve your neck pain.

The PSP at Key Spine Care creates a personalized treatment plan based on the cause of your neck pain and the severity of your symptoms. The team takes a conservative approach, offering therapies that support your body’s natural healing process.

Treatment for neck pain may include:

  • McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT)
  • Dynamic neuromuscular stabilization (DNS)
  • Joint manipulation
  • Dry needling
  • Physical therapy
  • Laser therapy
  • Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM)

If you need additional tests or specialists, the team at Key Spine Care makes the appropriate referrals. Still, Key Spine Care provides the primary care services necessary to reduce neck pain.
