The doctors at Valley Pain Centers have extensive experience in assessing and treating neck pain in both men and women. Treatments can be performed using minimally-invasive approaches without the need for more aggressive surgery.
The neck plays a difficult role within the body: the muscles and bones of the neck need to support the weight of the head, but the neck also must be flexible and able to move in multiple directions. It also acts as a conduit for nerves that travel from the brain to the rest of the body. Injuries or strain to any of the components of the neck, including the bones, joints, muscles, connective tissues, and nerves, can cause both local and radiating pain as well as other symptoms like tingling, numbness, burning sensations, and muscle fatigue and weakness.
The cervical spine is the portion of the spine that runs through the neck. The nerves that provide sensation to the neck, head, shoulders, and arms exit the spine in this region. Sometimes, uneven strains of forces on the neck can cause one of the spongy discs between the neck bones (vertebrae) to move out of its normal position, resulting in pressure on the nerves where they exit the spine. When this happens, pain can occur in the neck and in the areas served by the nerve. This painful condition is called cervical radiculopathy. Arthritis, spinal stenosis, and other spine-related conditions can also cause nerve compression in the cervical spine.
