Neck and Back Pain Relief
Common Conditions and Treatment
Neck and back pain can start from chronic degenerative processes or trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident or a work-related injury.
Neck pain can be isolated to the neck and shoulder area or can sometimes have symptoms radiating into the arms and hands.
Back pain can be isolated to the back or can sometimes radiate into the gluteal region, leg and foot.
Our diagnostic approaches to find the source of your pain include physical exams, nerve conduction studies/EMG, and imaging, such as MRIs, x-rays, and CT-scans.
Treatment for neck and back pain is unique to each patient, and can include physical and occupational therapy, medication management, and interventional pain procedures.
