Neck Pain | Are You Living with Neck Pain?

Neck Pain | At some point in life, we’ve all dealt with a stiff neck or what many refer to as a crick. This painful scenario usually passes within a day or two but sometimes, the pain can be more severe and lead to significant neck pain. The occasional pain in the neck can quickly lead to a tingling sensation in the arms or hands.

Living with neck pain can present challenges in other areas of life. Some of the pain may stem from pore posture, improper stretching before a workout, sleeping with improper neck support or other impromptu movements can impact the nerves in the neck. The pain may have a gradual onset or occur very abruptly. It may feel worse when making sudden movements, rotating the neck or looking to the right or left.

Our licensed providers can diagnose your condition and find the source of the pain. Important factors such as patient history are used to help pinpoint the cause of the neck pain. There are also a variety of tests that can help determine what causes the pain in your lower neck. You should never ignore the pain and go for extended periods of time without treatment. This could cause the condition to worsen and treatment to be more intense.
