Where neck pain begins.
Poor posture, repetitive motion injury, as well as sports injuries can lead to neck and arm pain. Neck pain is a common problem that can result from poor posture, wear and tear, overuse, or traumatic injury to the cervical spine. Neck pain can last for a few hours or days, or it can be a chronic problem that lasts for weeks or years.
Intervertebral discs are part of your body’s weight bearing and motion systems. Cervical discography can help diagnose which discs are painful.
Along with the discs, the cervical facet joints are at the core of your weight bearing and motion. Injuries to these joints, such as whiplash, or degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis, are the most common causes of neck pain. Painful facet joints can be diagnosed with medial branch blocks and treated with radiofrequency denervation.
Your nerve roots can become irritated by herniated discs or overgrown bone due to osteoarthritis of the spine causing neck and arm pain. Painful nerves can be diagnosed and treated with selective nerve blocks or cervical transformational epidural injections.
With our diagnostic approach, we use time-tested algorithms to find the sources of your neck and arm pain. Through a carefully planned interventional approach, we use injection techniques to determine where your neck and arm pain comes from. Once we established the correct diagnosis, appropriate options of treatment will be discussed and applied.
