Neck Pain

Dealing with neck pain can be quite a hassle. If you’re contending with chronic neck pain or restricted movement, it can significantly disrupt your daily activities. The multitude of potential causes for neck pain can make it challenging to figure out how to avoid exacerbating the situation. Fortunately, we have the expertise to assist you. Our team is experienced in diagnosing and treating all types of neck pain, and we can devise a personalized treatment plan to restore proper functionality and alleviate pain in your neck.

Common Symptoms

Neck issues can manifest in various symptoms, and we are equipped to address a range of common concerns, including:

  • Sharp neck pain
  • General soreness
  • Stiffness and difficulty moving your neck
  • Burning pain radiating to your shoulders and arms
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Headaches

Causes of Neck Pain

Mechanical issues, such as poor posture, are often culprits behind neck pain. For instance, spending extended periods hunched over a computer or work area can lead to muscle strain in your neck. In some cases, neck pain may be a symptom of more serious conditions, including:

  • Worn joints: Normal wear and tear or degenerative diseases like arthritis can contribute to the deterioration of neck joints.
  • Pinched nerve: Dysfunction in the bones and discs in your neck may exert pressure on nerves connected to your spinal cord.
  • Disease: Conditions like cancer, meningitis, and rheumatoid arthritis are potential causes of neck pain.
  • Injuries: The neck’s flexibility and support for the weight of your head make it susceptible to injuries, such as whiplash resulting from car accidents. If your neck pain followed an injury, seeking prompt assessment and treatment is crucial to prevent a minor issue from escalating.

Diagnosing Your Neck Pain

At Activa Clinics, our aim is to identify the root cause of your neck pain and address it effectively. Given the diverse potential causes of neck pain, our experienced medical professionals play a crucial role in your treatment. The process begins with discussing your symptoms, medical history, and any limitations you may be experiencing. A physical examination follows, and we employ advanced diagnostic tools such as x-rays, ultrasound, CT scans, bone scans, and more to pinpoint the underlying issue.

Finding the underlying cause is paramount for long-lasting results. Rather than merely alleviating symptoms, we adopt a holistic approach to correct the cause of your issues.
