Neck Pain

Important Facts

About 75% of the population experiences neck pain at some point in their lives. Prevalence is higher in office and computer workers. Neck pain can originate from muscles, joints or ligaments. Some conditions may even cause the pain to radiate to the shoulders and arms. Surgery is not always the answer. 

There are many noninvasive treatments to try before considering surgery. The neck is composed of seven bones, with joints on each side of the neck. This makes the neck the most flexible part of the spine. Schedule a visit with one of our providers to discuss the treatment options best suited for your condition.
