The vertebrae that make up your neck are collectively known as the cervical spine (as opposed to the thoracic spine that runs down your back). It’s designed to be as flexible as possible so that you can turn and move your head as needed; unfortunately, the tradeoff for such flexibility is an increased vulnerability to certain types of injury. If your neck is in chronic pain, reach out to Dr. Rozenberg as soon as possible to schedule an appointment so that a treatment plan can be developed.

Why Does Neck Pain Occur?
Neck pain is often due to tension and strain in certain muscles, which might occur if you’re in the habit of letting your head slump forward. It’s also a common side effect of working at a desk for too long without changing position or sleeping on your neck funny. In more serious cases, the muscles and ligaments in your neck can be injured during a fall or an accident, causing them to move out of place. Many types of neck pain will go away on their own, but if it lasts more than a week or grows particularly severe, you should seek professional treatment.
How Can Neck Pain Be Treated?
First, we need to closely examine your neck and diagnose the problem. As noted above, there can be multiple causes of neck pain with various degrees of severity. Spinal decompression, heat and cold therapy, and various other treatments might be employed. At home, you might undergo some stretches or exercises that we prescribe. Be sure to let us know right away if the pain grows worse or doesn’t seem to fade after a certain period of time.
What are the Benefits of Stopping Neck Pain?
Getting professional treatment for neck pain carries several benefits. The most obvious is the fact that you will no longer have to live with constant discomfort that might get in the way of living your life or even just relaxing. You can also prevent long-term issues with your neck mobility; after treatment, you may notice that it is easier for you to turn and tilt your head without experiencing pain, soreness, or stiffness. If neck pain isn’t going away on its own, make sure you call us sooner instead of later!
