What causes neck pain?


There are many different conditions that can lead to chronic neck pain. One of our first steps will be evaluating your symptoms and running screening tests to first diagnose the underlying cause of your pain.

A few of the most common causes of neck pain include:
 
Cervical Stenosis
Cervical stenosis happens when the spinal canal narrows due to degeneration over time. Because it becomes smaller and compresses the spinal cord, you may experience symptoms such as neck pain, muscle spasms, numbness in the upper extremities, stiffness, and loss of function.
 
Arthritis
Arthritis in the neck, otherwise called spondylosis, is an age-related condition that causes symptoms including neck pain, stiffness, and muscle spasms. This is most often caused by degeneration near the facet joint.
 
Disc Degeneration
Cervical degenerative disc disease is commonly associated with neck pain and neck stiffness. This condition involves unwanted pressure placed on the nerves located through the spinal cord causing pain, muscle weakness, numbness, and a decreased range of motion.
 
Inflammation
Neck inflammation due to an injury, medical procedure, bacterial infection, or viral infection can cause pain. Without the proper treatment, chronic inflammation of the neck can cause long term damage to your neck joints.
 
Injury
Injuries such as muscle sprains and strains can cause achiness, stiffness, and pain in the neck. Other symptoms of neck trauma may include facial pain, dizziness, and pain in the extremities.

How will you diagnose my neck pain?


Neck pain can be officially diagnosed through a series of screening tests and physical examinations. Testing and diagnosis may include a comprehensive physical examination, questionnaire, discography, x-ray, selective nerve root block, magnetic resonance imaging, electromyography, and/or computed tomography scan.

What treatments are available for neck pain?


A few of the most effective treatment options for neck pain available at Pain Specialists of Frisco include:
 
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections are used to treat injuries, muscle spasms, and chronic muscle tension. They contain an anesthetic that provides pain relief to the targeted muscle.
 
Facet Injections
Facet joint injections contain an anesthetic for numbing pain as well as a cortisone for decreasing inflammation. These types of injections are most often used for conditions of the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar regions.
 
Medications
Anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving medications can be used to treat symptoms of your chronic pain condition. Some of the medication options that our team can help manage include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, antidepressants, COX-2 inhibitors, anti-seizure medications, opioids, and acetaminophen.
