At St. Louis Medical Center, we offer a combination of medical and non-invasive therapies to treat conditions like neck pain at our clinic in St. Louis. Neck pain relief is vital for people who are suffering, but it can often be attained easily through a simple adjustment of the spine. The human spine is versatile and complex. It provides support and protects the internal organs and nervous system, while still allowing incredible flexibility and movement. The neck is a unique and important part of this magnificent structure, delicate and vulnerable to pain, yet strong enough to support the head’s weight. To effectively treat neck pain a doctor must first determine the root cause of the pain.

Unfortunately, it’s often difficult to determine neck pain causes. At our dedicated team of doctors in St. Louis, work hard to determine the source of neck pain, which can include things like irritation, inflammation, injury, infection, irritation of the cervical nerve roots, encroachment of the vertebral canal’s vascular supply, or invasion of the cord into the spinal canal. Arthritis can also cause neck pain, because of the disc thinning or disc degeneration and deterioration of muscles and ligaments associated with the condition

Many illnesses or injuries can cause neck pain, especially those that effect the curvature of the neck, causing it to become too straight or even reverse its curve.  That’s why it’s vital to determine the root issues behind chronic neck pain in order to create an effective treatment plan. At St. Louis Medical Center, therapy for neck pain can involve a variety of non-invasive therapies, tailored to fit each unique medical condition.

Sometimes patients wait until they are in crisis to seek neck pain treatment and neglect to see a doctor until the pain becomes acute. Unfortunately, when a patient waits too long, neck pain causes remain undetected until there is a serious problem. A better course of action is to have regular examinations. Prompt attention ensures that potentially problematic issues are treated before they require chronic pain management.

For residents in St. Louis, chronic neck pain and many other conditions are treated using non-invasive medical procedures like chiropractic, physical rehabilitation, and trigger point therapy. The medical professionals at St. Louis Medical Center perform a comprehensive examination and diagnostic assessment, in order to prescribe an effective neck pain therapy plan designed to alleviate the cause of distress

Understanding NeckPain:

Top 5 FAQs

Neck pain is typically caused by either poor posture/strain or a whiplash injury. When you sit hunched over a computer screen, your shoulders and head move forward, straining the cervical spine and compressing the vertebrae. This also increases the risk for degenerative disc disease. A whiplash injury may cause neck pain when the force of a rear-impact accident “whips” the cervical spine backwards and forward, knocking the spine out of proper alignment. This misalignment may place pressure on nearby nerves, triggering neck pain, as well as headaches and other health problems.

If you suffer frequent neck or back pain, make an appointment with our chiropractor for an assessment and treatment plan.
