If you’ve been struggling with neck pain that doesn’t seem to get better, neck treatment from an orthopedic specialist may be the right option for you
While the neck is almost constantly working to move and support the weight of your head, it’s actually less protected than the rest of your spine. This makes it vulnerable to injury that not only produces pain but also restricts movement.
If you are experiencing persistent, severe pain that radiates down your arms, legs or neck pain accompanied by numbness, tingling or weakness, then it’s time to speak with the specialists at NJ Spine and Wellness.
The first step to treating neck pain is to find out what’s causing your symptoms. When you come to NJ Spine and Wellness, we provide thorough consultations and examinations to ensure we find the right diagnosis to treat your neck pain. During your appointment, you can expect:
Once we diagnose the cause of your neck pain, our doctors can recommend a course of treatment. While some conditions can be treated conservatively, others may require more invasive procedures or surgery.
For most neck-related complaints, we offer nonsurgical, conservative treatment options first. This may include:
In rare cases, we may recommend neck surgery as the best course of action. While we prefer and promote conservative, non-invasive neck pain treatment, sometimes surgery is warranted. A surgical procedure may be needed if you’ve experienced a herniated disc or another issue that is putting pressure on your nerve roots or spinal cord.
