Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

Acute neck pain may be the result of muscle strains that occur from poor posture, overuse of electronics, and a lack of physical activity. This type of pain typically lasts for less than four weeks and resolves with over-the-counter medications and rest.

When you have chronic neck pain that lasts longer than six months, it may be due to underlying degenerative issues that affect your upper, or cervical, spine. You may also be prone to chronic neck pain following a traumatic event like an auto accident or a fall.

Dr. Wynn offers comprehensive pain management services to address a variety of chronic neck pain causes, including:

  • Neuropathy
  • Herniated disc
  • Cervical spinal stenosis
  • Facet joint degeneration
  • Degenerative disc disease

You can also find nonsurgical solutions for chronic neck pain due to different types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

How is neck pain diagnosed?

To determine the underlying cause of your neck pain, Dr. Wynn takes time to review your medical history and perform a physical exam. He checks your cervical spine for signs of swelling and assesses the range of motion in your neck.

You might need X-rays or other diagnostic imaging tests to identify arthritis and other degenerative conditions.

Once Dr. Wynn understands the cause of your pain, he tailors a treatment plan to ease it and help restore your neck’s range of motion.

How is neck pain treated?

Depending on the root cause of your neck pain, Dr. Wynn can use one or more pain management strategies to treat it. He offers a variety of nonsurgical, minimally invasive therapies like:

  • Stem cell therapy
  • Cervical facet injections
  • Cervical trigger point injections
  • Cervical epidural steroid injections

To ensure these injections go into the right place within your cervical spine, Dr. Wynn relies on the guidance of ultrasound or fluoroscopy technology.

In addition to pain management therapies, Dr. Wynn can help you improve your neck pain by recommending exercises you can do at home to relax your muscles. You may also benefit from physical therapy to strengthen the muscles that support your cervical spine.

Wynn Over Pain also offers holistic acupuncture therapy that uses fine needles to stimulate pressure points in your body. This stimulation increases your blood circulation and helps your body fight pain naturally.
