Treatments for Neck Pain

Usually pain improves with over-the-counter medicine, specific strengthening exercises and other forms of self-care remedies. Neck pain can be prevented by maintaining a healthy weight, reducing emotional stress that may cause muscle spasm and doing exercises that improve balance.

If your chronic pain persists, alternatives to try before surgery include acupuncture, physical therapy and injections to the pain area. We want to try all non-surgical options before concluding surgery is the right path for you. Together, you and your care team will determine the right treatment plan for you. Review some options below to prepare for your appointment.
