Neck Pain Treatment in Fort Worth & Irving, TX
The bones of the neck play an important role in supporting the head. Likewise, the curve of the neck is important in determining the overall shape and structure of the rest of the spine. A slight spinal curvature allows for a clear opening of the spinal cord which exists through the center of the neck bones as well as the nerves between the vertebrae.
Causes of Neck Pain
In everyday life, the cervical spine is subject to a host of issues that affect its curvature. Wear and tear of the neck may occur from a sports injury, a slip and fall, or a car accident resulting in whiplash. Even the way we sit and stand and the way we position our head and shoulders affects the neck muscles and bones.
Poor posture, jarring movements, or strains may all cause neck pain. The most common cause of neck pain is a muscle strain caused by bad posture or lack of support, such as sleeping with the neck in awkward positions.
Stress and tension can also cause tightening of the shoulders and neck muscles.
All of these various situations can cause the bones of the neck to move slightly out of alignment affecting the normal curve of the neck and pinching the vital nerves or blood vessels of the spinal cord.
Symptoms Could Include:
- Stiff neck or sharp pain during movement
- Numbing or tingling of the arms or hands
- Chronic tension in the shoulder area and between the shoulder blades
- Waking up with stiff and sore muscles
- Poor posture
- Soreness and difficulty moving the neck, especially when trying to turn the head from side to side
- General soreness
- Hard time gripping or lifting objects
- Recurring headaches are often one of the most telling warning signs that one or more vertebrae are misaligned in your neck leading to a pinched nerve.
Visiting an experienced chiropractic for a spine and nerve examination can help determine where the problem lies.
Non-Surgical Regenerative Therapies for Neck Pain Relief
At Atlas Medical Center, we specialize in helping those suffering from neck pain even after other conventional treatments such as medications, cortisone injections, physical therapy, and surgery have failed.
We use the industry’s latest alternatives to surgery and steroids. We help those with pain due to a range of conditions from spinal stenosis, injury, herniated disc, pinched nerve, mental and physical stress and strain, poor posture, spinal arthritis, or intervertebral disc degeneration.
Platelet rich plasma therapy and bone marrow derived stem cell therapy can help enhance the body’s own natural healing ability. For some, these platelet-rich plasma therapy therapies are then followed up with other non-surgical therapies such as laser therapy or spinal decompression therapy to help facilitate and accelerate the healing process.
Spinal decompression treatments are highly effective at repairing herniated discs to relieve compressed nerve conditions including sciatica and chronic neck pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. This change takes the pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc.
Cold laser therapy along with Spinal Decompression therapy, and physiotherapy helps reduce neck pain, and inflammation, and improve overall function.
At Atlas Medical Center, our experienced doctors can examine and identify the cause of your neck pain and provide a customized treatment plan for your unique needs and goals.
