At Pain Relief Partners, we offer non-invasive therapies to treat conditions such as neck pain at our clinic located in Vancouver, Washington. Pain relief is vital for people who are suffering from neck pain, and it can often be attained easily through injection therapy and adjustments of the spine. The human spine is versatile and complex. It provides support and protects the internal organs and nervous system, while still allowing incredible flexibility and movement. The neck is a unique and important part of the spine, delicate and vulnerable to pain, yet strong enough to support the head’s weight. To effectively treat neck pain the root cause of the pain must be determined.
At our clinic in Vancouver, Washington we work hard to determine the source of neck pain, which can include things like inflammation, injury, infection, irritation of the cervical nerve roots, encroachment of the vertebral canal’s vascular supply, or invasion of the cord into the spinal canal. Arthritis can also cause neck pain because of the disc thinning, disc degeneration, and deterioration of muscles and ligaments associated with the condition. We perform a thorough exam to assess for potential causes of pain and order x-rays or other imaging if we think this may be helpful in finding a diagnosis and developing the best treatment plan.
Many illnesses or injuries can cause neck pain, especially those that alter the curvature of the neck, causing it to become too straight or even reverse its curve. That’s why it’s vital to determine the root issues behind chronic neck pain in order to create an effective treatment plan. At Pain Relief Partners, therapy for neck pain can involve a variety of non-invasive therapies, tailored to fit each unique medical situation.
Sometimes patients wait until they are in crisis to seek neck pain treatment and neglect to see a provider until the pain becomes severe. Unfortunately, when a patient waits too long, neck pain causes remain undetected until there is a serious problem. A better course of action is to seek relief at the onset of symptoms. Prompt attention ensures that potentially problematic issues are treated before they require chronic pain management.
