Neck Pain Q & A

What Is Neck Pain?

There is a vast number of individuals that have dealt with neck pain at one point or another in their life. Neck pain can be minor and easy to deal with, or terribly devastating, making it almost impossible to live, work, and play the way that you would like. What many people don't realize is that neck pain can be a result of many different underlying conditions, all of which require very specific forms of treatment in order to relieve your pain.

What Can Cause Neck Pain?

Contrary to what many people believe, neck pain is not necessarily the result of an injury. In fact, the most common form of neck pain stems from improper posture as a result of working at a computer job all day long. It is also possible that neck pain can be a result of degenerative conditions such as disc problems or osteoarthritis. No matter the reason for your neck pain, multiple forms of treatment can provide you relief and significantly improve your quality of life.

Do I Have Non-Invasive Treatment Options?

For most individuals experiencing neck pain, surgery is a last resort. Minor neck pain can be addressed with treatment options such as temperature therapy, a physical therapy regimen, or prescription medications like painkillers or muscle relaxants. More intense neck pain can be treated with corticosteroids or traction. If your doctor recommends surgery, it is likely that your neck pain stems from a more serious underlying condition.

Can Neck Pain Indicate Something More Serious?

Some causes of neck pain can indicate much more serious conditions, such as meningitis or the chronic pain condition known as fibromyalgia. If you suspect that your neck pain is a sign of something more severe, seek medical treatment immediately. However, if you simply want to address your pain and improve your life, then you need to visit Dr. James Nassiri in Beverly Hills, CA at the Westside Pain Specialists clinic. Dr. Nassiri will examine your neck to find the source and provide a course of treatment. Contact Westside Pain Specialists today.
