What is Cervical (Neck) Pain?
Cervical pain refers to pain in the neck. Problems in the cervical spine can also radiate pain, numbness, and weakness to the shoulders, arms and hands.
What are the symptoms of Cervical (Neck) Pain ?
Neck pain can range in intensity from minor to severe, and can include shooting pain that extends into the arm or shoulder, alterations in normal bowel or bladder function, strength loss or numbness in the hands or arms, loss of balance and coordination, and pain that leaves you unable to lower your chin to your chest. These typically require rapid medical attention.
What are the causes of Cervical (Neck) Pain?
If you overuse your neck muscles, you can develop a muscle strain. Repeated overuse of these muscles can lead to the onset of chronic or ongoing neck pain. You can also develop neck pain if your nerves don’t have enough room to pass through the spaces in and between the vertebrae. Potential sources of this problem, called nerve compression, include bulging or herniated discs, a narrowing of the spinal canal called stenosis, and arthritis-related bone growths called bone spurs.
What is the treatment like for Cervical (Neck) Pain?
Most physicians will first recommend a conservative approach, such as hot/cold compresses, medication, exercise or physical therapy. They could also recommend epidural steroid injections (ESI), selective nerve root block injections (SNRB), or a combination of the two. These injections are usually performed in a series of three: a physician injects an anti-inflammatory, typically a mix of steroid and local anesthetic, into the problem area. If symptoms persist, a minimally invasive procedure might be an option for long term relief.
If the source of your neck pain is a bulging/herniated disc, you may be a candidate for a minimally invasive laser spine procedure. If disc degeneration, bone-related stenosis or spondylosis is causing your pain, if your condition is more severe or if your spine stability is compromised, a minimally invasive spine surgery such as a fusion or disc replacement might be an option to relieve your symptoms.
