Neck Pain Q & A

Active Health Center

What causes neck pain?

The cervical spine is the part of your spine in your neck that supports your head and serves as communication between your brain and the nerves throughout your body. If any of the nerve pathways in your cervical spine become irritated, it can cause pain in your neck that radiates to your shoulders, head, arms, hands, or even down to your legs. Chronic neck pain that persists for more than three months may be a sign of a cervical disc problem or an issue with one of the facet joints in your neck.

Common causes of neck pain include:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Degenerative disc disease of the cervical spine
  • Osteoarthritis or worn joints
  • Bone spurs
  • Herniated discs or nerve compression
  • Spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal column
  • Emotional stresses
  • An infection
  • Repetitive motions
  • Poor posture

If you experience neck pain regularly and making adjustments to your pillows, posture, or desk chair don’t help, you may benefit from a more comprehensive, multidisciplinary diagnosis and treatment plan.

How is the cause of my neck pain diagnosed?

The medical, chiropractic, and physical therapy team at Active Health Center takes a whole-person approach to diagnosing and treating the underlying causes of your neck pain. The team also offers the advanced diagnostic and rehabilitation technology of the Multi-Cervical Unit (MCU) to assess your neck’s strengths and areas of weakness so they can coordinate the most effective treatment plan.

What are the benefits of the MCU in treating neck pain?

As with other spinal pain and conditions, treatment for neck pain depends on the underlying cause. The MCU can determine the best way to approach your particular cervical condition. The MCU provides a number of benefits, including:

  • Evaluation to pinpoint weakness and asymmetry in the cervical spine
  • Reduced neck pain
  • Improved daily function
  • Increased range of motion
  • Long-term pain relief and results
  • Increased neck strength
  • Lower chance of reinjury

The advanced MCU system focuses on providing long-term relief from symptoms so you can enjoy a better quality of life.

What other treatment methods are available?

Your comprehensive treatment plan may include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Gentle chiropractic care
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Manual therapy and massage for hands-on healing of muscles and soft tissue in the neck and shoulders
  • Ultrasound-guided trigger points injections

With the advanced technology of the MCU and a comprehensive medical and therapeutic plan, it’s possible to abolish neck pain for good. To learn more about the holistic approach and advanced neck pain technologies at Active Health Center, call or schedule a consultation online today.
