Neck Pain

EmergeOrtho is the Leading Expert in Treating Neck Pain

Neck pain is very common – two out of every three individuals will experience neck pain at some point in their lives. EmergeOrtho physicians understand that neck pain can be caused by a multitude of factors. Therefore, determining the precise cause of your symptoms is the most important step in the treatment process. Our neck and spine specialists work together to assess the complete picture and ensure a proper diagnosis.

Some common causes of neck pain include:

  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Pinched nerves
  • Fractures and traumatic injuries
  • Disc degeneration
  • Structural problems
  • Improper posture
  • Spondylosis
  • Infections
  • Arthritis
  • Whiplash injuries

Many times, neck pain improves with home treatment. However, if your pain is severe, you should seek medical attention—delaying treatment means risking further damage.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, you should contact one of our orthopedic physicians:

  • Difficulty moving your head from side to side
  • Pain that radiates to your hands and arms
  • Arm weakness
  • Clumsiness
  • Change in hand and arm coordination
  • Sensitivity in the leg or arm

Your physician may perform a variety of imaging tests to determine the exact cause of your neck pain. These may include CT scans, EMGs, X-rays, or MRIs.

We offer an extensive scope of both surgical and nonsurgical treatments for neck pain. These include:

Surgery may be needed, particularly if the neck pain is related to a fracture, slipped disc or problems with the spine.

Only a handful of sub-specialties are as complex as those of the neck, spine and back. The EmergeOrtho team is dedicated to helping you find the cause of your neck pain and creating an individualized treatment plan to alleviate your symptoms.
