The neck, comprising seven individual bones known as the cervical spine, serves a crucial role in supporting the head. Beyond providing support, the neck’s curvature determines the shape and structure of the entire spine. At Atlas Medical Center, we offer specialized care to address various conditions that can lead to neck pain. From non-surgical regenerative therapies to chiropractic adjustments, our team is dedicated to providing effective solutions for optimal neck health.
Whiplash is a common neck injury typically caused by a sudden jolting motion of the head, often resulting from car accidents or sports-related incidents. This condition occurs when the neck muscles and ligaments are strained beyond their normal range of motion, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. Whiplash can also result in headaches, dizziness, and shoulder discomfort. Prompt medical evaluation is crucial to accurately diagnose and manage this condition, ensuring appropriate care for those affected.
Cervical spondylosis refers to the age-related wear and tear of the spinal discs in the neck region. Over time, the discs between the vertebrae gradually lose their elasticity and cushioning ability, leading to stiffness, pain, and reduced flexibility in the neck. This condition commonly affects individuals as they age, causing symptoms like neck and shoulder pain, tingling or numbness in the arms, and headaches. Atlas Medical Center offers non-surgical, regenerative treatments to stimulate healing and address the root cause of neck pain.
Cervical radiculopathy is a condition that arises from the compression or irritation of a nerve root in the cervical spine. This compression can occur due to various factors, such as herniated discs, bone spurs, or spinal stenosis. Cervical radiculopathy typically manifests as pain, numbness, and weakness radiating from the neck down into the arm and hand, following the path of the affected nerve. Our medical professionals use cutting-edge techniques to identify and treat the root cause of radiculopathy.
Cervical Disc Herniation
Cervical disc herniation occurs when one of the intervertebral discs, which act as cushions between the vertebrae in the neck, ruptures or protrudes, exerting pressure on nearby nerves. These discs are vital in providing flexibility, shock absorption, and stability to the cervical spine. However, with wear and tear or age-related degeneration, the outer layer of the disc may weaken, leading to herniation. This condition can result in symptoms like neck pain, radiating arm pain, tingling, and muscle weakness.
