Neck Pain Q&A

What is neck pain?

Your neck is where the spinal column and spinal cord begin. While the entire spinal column contains dozens of bony segments called vertebrae, the neck is comprised of seven. 

These oddly shaped bony structures, or cervical vertebrae, help protect your spinal cord and provide flexibility for your neck.

The muscles, bones, and ligaments in your neck help hold up and support your head, which weighs more than 10 pounds, so damage to any of these structures can lead to debilitating chronic pain.

What causes neck pain?

There are many conditions and injuries that can cause neck pain, including:

  • Sports injury
  • Whiplash
  • Teeth grinding/jaw clenching
  • Pinched nerve
  • Arthritis
  • Poor posture
  • Meningitis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Tumor
  • Poor sleep habits
  • Muscle strain
  • Herniated disc

If you’ve been experiencing neck pain for more than six weeks, the condition is considered chronic and should be evaluated by a doctor. 

The team at Interventional Spine Medicine specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of neck pain. They can design an individualized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and health goals.

How is neck pain treated?

After a comprehensive diagnosis, your provider will explain exactly how their various neck pain treatments can restore your health.

Spinal Injections 

The team at Interventional Spine Medicine will assess the correct injection for your condition, including epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, radiofrequency lesioning, or trigger point injections.
