To obtain the correct diagnosis of your neck pain, the team begins with a comprehensive evaluation and exam. They ask about your medical history, any past trauma to your neck, and any prior treatments you’ve tried for your neck pain.
During your exam, they move your neck in different directions, measure your range of motion, and apply pressure to areas of your neck to check for tenderness, tension, and swelling. They also assess the function of your joints, muscles, and nerves to rule out more complex conditions. If necessary, they may recommend imaging tests such as X-rays or an MRI.
Based on their findings, the team explains your diagnosis and outlines a treatment program to address your pain and resolve your condition.
As a multidisciplinary clinic, the team takes an integrated approach to neck pain treatment that combines noninvasive and minimally invasive procedures as needed to relieve your pain. Your treatment plan may include:
