What Causes Neck Pain?
A pain in the neck is common, but chronic neck and back pain is a disabling condition. Neck pain can result from poor posture, injuries, stress and other underlying conditions. Often, a combination of all these factors along with low levels of fitness and a poor diet can all contribute to chronic neck pain. With injury and poor posture, the muscles and ligaments of the upper back and neck can get overstretched and weak. This places more stress on the discs and joints of the cervical spine causing disc degeneration and joint inflammation. If left untreated, cervical spine arthritis and stenosis can develop causing chronic pain and stiffness.
Injuries such as whiplash or falls can cause chronic neck pain from tears in the deep ligaments and muscles. This often causes spasms of the supporting muscles that contribute to neck pain and limited range of motion. Abnormal position of the cervical spine can also tighten and fatigue the supporting muscles. The nerves can get irritated or compressed by swollen joints and bulging discs contributing to pain, weakness and numbness down the shoulder and arm.

Understanding Your Neck Pain Treatment and Diagnosis
Neck pain can be a debilitating condition that affects daily life and hinders productivity. Whether it arises in the morning or worsens throughout the day, it can disrupt your ability to engage in activities you enjoy. Common triggers for neck pain include prolonged computer work, sports activities, or specific job duties that strain the neck muscles and joints. As the pain persists, it may radiate to the head, shoulders, and arms, causing additional discomfort and limitation of movement. Numbness, tingling sensations, and weakness in the arms and hands often accompany neck pain, further highlighting the need for effective treatment and relief.
At Integrative Rehab Medicine, we understand the impact that neck pain can have on your well- being, and our comprehensive approach to neck pain treatment is designed to address the underlying causes and provide lasting relief. Our experienced team will conduct a thorough history and physical evaluation to accurately diagnose the root cause of your neck pain. We take into account all the contributing factors, including muscle imbalances, ligament instability, and motion restrictions, in order to develop a targeted treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. In addition to addressing the physical aspects of your condition, we recognize the importance of considering lifestyle factors that may be exacerbating your neck pain. Our team will evaluate your work habits, diet, stress levels, and other lifestyle factors that could be contributing to your symptoms. This holistic approach allows us to create a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses not only the physical aspects but also the underlying lifestyle factors that may be impacting your neck pain. To further aid in diagnosis and treatment planning, we may utilize advanced imaging techniques and nerve studies, such as electromyography (EMG), to gain a deeper understanding of your condition.
These diagnostic tools help us gather valuable information about the nerves, muscles, and overall function of your neck, allowing us to develop a more targeted and effective treatment approach. Our primary goal is to provide you with effective neck pain relief and improve your overall quality of life. Through a combination of targeted therapies, which may include physical therapy, prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma, and lifestyle modifications, we aim to alleviate your pain, restore function, and prevent future recurrences.
