Medications can assist with neck pain, but bring a risk of severe side effects. Surgery is also an effective option for some conditions, but many types of neck pain are treatable with minimally invasive options.
Interventional injections are a great treatment approach for neck pain. Some injections introduce anti-inflammatory medications or steroids to ease pain, while others work by impeding the transmission of pain signals from your cervical nerves to your brain.
Some interventional injections offered at I-SPINE include:
Some interventional injections provide lasting pain relief, while others are used for short-term pain management while additional treatment efforts are underway.
Physical therapy is an excellent option for treating neck pain. Not only are physical therapy techniques non-invasive, but they also teach you self-care techniques that you can apply at home once your sessions are complete.
During physical therapy, you’ll learn special stretches and exercises that work to tone and strengthen the muscles that support proper neck function. Aerobic conditioning may also play a role in your therapy, improving blood flow to your neck and speeding your natural healing function.
Learning and practicing these techniques under professional guidance ensures that you gain the skill needed to continue your physical therapy efforts at home. That makes all the difference in your ability to strengthen your muscles and improve flexibility.
