Neck pain can be caused by both traumatic injuries and degenerative conditions that cause wear and tear to the cervical spine. Much of neck pain can be treated with minimally invasive and interventional pain management techniques, bringing much desired relief. In fact, less than 10% of neck pain needs surgical treatment. Patients who have neck pain that radiates into the shoulder or arm and causes pain or numbness should seek an evaluation by a specialist.

Common conditions that cause neck pain include:

  • Muscle strain
  • Herniated Disc
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bone spurs
  • Disk Herniation
  • Whiplash injuries
