Neck Pain Treatment for Residents of DeKalb, IL & Surrounding Cities
Neck pain treatment is often sought by individuals from DeKalb, IL, and nearby communities when they consult with the orthopaedic experts at Midwest Orthopaedic Institute. Neck pain is very common and can stem from a variety of underlying causes, many of which are related to the natural aging process. The vertebrae, ligaments, and muscles that make up the cervical (neck) region of the spine must support the weight of the head through a wide range of motion. As a result, the neck is prone to injury and subject to significant wear and tear, and the cumulative effects over time can lead to pain that requires treatment.
At MOI, we encourage individuals to seek neck pain treatment at our spine center near DeKalb, Illinois, if their discomfort is:
- Seemingly related to a vehicle collision, fall, or other type of accident
- Accompanied by headaches, numbness, tingling, or muscle weakness
- Traveling (radiating) down the arms or legs
In many cases, neck pain responds favorably to non-surgical treatment options, such as physical therapy, medication, hot/cold therapy, a soft cervical collar, and steroid-based injections. Surgery may be recommended to address spinal cord or spinal nerve root compression, or severe or persistent symptoms that do not respond to conservative treatments.
MOI created its spine center specifically to provide patients and referring physicians with easy access to a center of excellence for the treatment of neck and back pain and other spinal problems. We understand that elsewhere it often takes weeks to schedule an appointment with a spine specialist, and it is all too common for a patient to be forced to wait in pain before being properly diagnosed and treated. With our help, individuals who are experiencing neck or back problems can receive convenient and timely care that is guided by an experienced spine specialist.
