Neck Pain

Neck Pain Treatment In Arlington Va

The neck (cervical spine) is composed of vertebrae that begins in the upper torso and ends at the skull. Neck pain can be extremely painful and limiting to someone experiencing symptoms. Pain in the neck can stem from multiple different origins because the neck has a significant amount of motion, supporting the head and also less protection than the rest of the spine which makes it vulnerable to injury and other restrictive disorders.

Common Causes Of Neck Pain

Neck pain may be the result of multiple different factors. When someone comes to OrthoBethesda in our Arlington VA office, we get to the root causes of where the pain is stemming from. Many people experience neck pain as a result of a strain which can be the result of a sports incident or sleeping on the wrong side of the bed causing muscles to tighten. Treatments for this type of neck pain can include physical therapy. Muscle strains can create physical pain as well as injuries like whiplash or an impact. Here are some of the most common issues our providers see:

  • Inflammatory Diseases like rheumatoid arthritis causing neck pain
  • Cervical Disk Degeneration (spondylosis)
  • Injuries
  • Tumors
  • Infections
  • Vertebrae abnormalities
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Spondylosis
  • Herniated Cervical Disk
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Meningitis

Many of the causes of neck pain listed above can be very serious. If you are experiencing symptoms in line with the issues above, you should consult with a physician immediately.

How do I know If My Neck Pain Is Serious?

If you have an injury that radiates throughout your body where you experience neck pain, we suggest that you seek immediate medical care. If you are seeking pain relief and feel numbness in your legs, arms or experience weakness you should also seek immediate medical care.

If there hasn’t been a significant event or injury but you have severe and consistent pain with tingling, numbness, headaches, and weakness, phone a doctor immediately. Having neck pain is very serious and it is not something that should be left unaddressed. Contact a provider today to schedule an appointment or seek immediate help if you fall into one of the categories listed above.
