Neck Pain Surgery at SPINE/RX
What Is Neck Pain?
Neck pain is a common symptom, often pertaining not just to the neck but also the base of the skull, shoulders, arms, hands, fingers, or any other part of the body connected to your upper spine. It is especially important to seek medical attention if your pain does not get better after rest, or if it is accompanied by headaches or tingling or weakness in the arms and fingers.
How Is Neck Pain Treated?
Neck pain is most typically treated with either one or a combination of the following: rest, medication, physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, injections or surgery.
When Is Surgery Recommended for Neck Pain?
Surgery may be recommended for neck pain if it does not improve through initial treatment methods, or if you’re experiencing any of the following serious symptoms: continuous pain at the base of the skull, back of the neck, shoulders or chest muscles; or a tingling sensation or weakness in the arms and fingers. Surgery may also be recommended if diagnostic tests detect damage to the spinal cord or nerve roots, or if spine surgeons anticipate any significant risk of future deterioration.
Living with neck pain can be disabling, and may cause you to miss out on the activities you love. If medication or therapy fail to relieve neck pain, spine surgery may provide the relief you need to live the life you desire.
