Neck Pain – Avoid Surgery

Although there may be times when neck surgery is required, surgery should always be a last resort. Many people are able to avoid neck surgery through the use of our cervical decompression therapy and other chiropractic services.

Pain in the neck area is often due to pinched nerves in the cervical spine region. Here at Michigan Spine Center we’ve developed innovative cervical decompression techniques that can eliminate or significantly lessen your neck pain.

Call Michigan Spine Center at (586) 774-6301 to find out if our innovative procedures are right for you.

The cervical region of the spine has 7 vertebrae (C1-C7) and is the area from the base of your skull down to the top of your back where the thoracic region begins.

Causes of Neck Pain

Many types of neck pain are caused by cervical spine imbalances and impinged (or pinched) nerves. These are often experienced as a result of trauma or can be part of the aging process, but can be brought on prematurely by several factors such as:

  • Injuries such as whiplash due to car accidents
  • Occupations that require a lot of sitting and staring at computers
  • Sports related injuries
  • Poor posture
  • History of cervical ailments which can become complicated if proper treatment is not rendered.

One of the most common causes of neck pain, particularly in younger patients is whiplash. Keep in mind that whiplash can occur regardless of the speed of impact and pain may not show up immediately after an accident.

The amount of disc material between your cervical vertebrae isn’t very much, so even a small disc herniation (often referred to as a ruptured or slipped disc) can put pressure on the nerves and spinal cord, resulting in neck pain along with additional symptoms. If you are experiencing neck pain or discomfort, it’s important to seek help before it gets worse.

Symptoms of Neck Injury

Oftentimes, a bulging or protruding disc will swell and impinge the nerve, resulting in what is commonly called a pinched nerve in the neck. When the nerve is pinched it causes the pain in the neck area and will often lead to weakness, numbness and tingling in the arms, hands and fingers, and even headaches.

Many ailments to the cervical spine area are treated successfully without surgery if done properly, so it’s important to begin decompression therapy as soon as possible. Call us now to discuss your options.
