What are some common causes of neck pain?
Neck pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor posture, nerve compression, car accidents, arthritis or other diseases, and repetitive stress or wear on the joints.
How can I alleviate neck pain at home?
Maintaining good posture throughout the day is key to reducing neck pain. This may include adjusting your workspace so that your computer is at eye level and taking frequent breaks when sitting for extended periods. You may also want to avoid carrying heavy bags that can strain your neck and avoid talking on the phone with it tucked between your ear and shoulder. Improving your sleeping posture can also help alleviate neck pain.
What is “text neck”?
“Text neck” is a relatively new phenomenon that can cause chronic neck pain. It is a repetitive stress injury caused by excessive use of handheld devices. Even tilting your head forward to look at your phone can add significant force to your neck. Overuse of handheld devices can lead to pain, muscle weakness, headaches, and stiffness in the neck.
How will my neck pain be diagnosed?
At Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, our pain management doctors provide personalized care and attention to ensure an accurate diagnosis. A physical exam will be performed to determine any tenderness or muscle weakness in your neck, as well as any numbness that may indicate nerve damage. Imaging tests like X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs may be used to identify any structural problems. Electromyography (EMG) may also be used to identify whether nerve compression is causing your neck pain.
What treatments are available for neck pain?
Treatment for neck pain may include physical therapy, short-term immobilization, medication management, or use of a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) device. Facet joint injections using corticosteroid medications can also help alleviate chronic neck pain. At Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, your treatment plan will be tailored to your individual needs for a comprehensive and personalized approach to your care.
