Neck Pain

Chronic neck pain shouldn’t be ignored. To get a fast, accurate diagnosis of your neck pain, visit Minnesota Institute for Pain Management.  We offer on-site testing and we offer our patients  custom treatments to quickly ease persistent neck pain and address its underlying cause. MIPM uses physical therapy recommendations, non-narcotic medications, and minimally invasive surgeries to provide you with long-lasting pain relief.

What Causes Neck Pain?

Your neck, or cervical spine, is made up of vertebrae that support the weight of your head and give you range of motion to move it around in a variety of ways. When any of the bones, muscles, or ligaments are damaged by injury or disease, you can experience persistent neck discomfort or chronic neck pain.
Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Fractures
  • Whiplash
  • Inflammation
  • Radiculopathy
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Cervical disc herniation
  • Degenerative disc disease

How is neck pain diagnosed?

To better understand the root cause of your neck pain, MIPM performs a physical exam to evaluate your range of motion and the areas of tenderness and pain in your neck.

To confirm your diagnosis or rule out underlying medical conditions, we may request imaging tests, like a CT scan or X-rays. These tests will help us take a closer look at the structure of your neck to identify nerve compression, fractures, or damaged discs.

How is neck pain treated?

Minnesota Institute for Pain Management treating underlying causes instead of just immediately prescribing narcotics. When over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatories aren’t enough to ease your neck pain, MIPM may recommend physical therapy to increase the flexibility of your neck and keep the muscles that support it strong.

For some people, immobilizing the neck for a period of time with a medical collar allows the muscles that support your neck time to rest.

You may also benefit from injections of anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medications directly into the joint to relieve inflammation and pain. Our staff can also prescribe non-narcotic medications to keep you comfortable and improve the range of motion in your neck.
