Neck Pain Symptoms & Treatment NYC
Neck pain is a common condition that millions of Americans suffer from every year. When dealing with neck pain don't resort to using over-the-counter drugs that provide only temporary relief. Consult a physician who will get to the source of your problem. Living Well Medical in Downtown Manhattan uses the latest therapies and treatments for neck pain.
Neck Pain Types and Causes
Neck pain can be caused by a number of conditions. Depending on the cause of neck pain the treatment will vary. Living Well Medical uses a comprehensive approach to find the cause of pain and treat it using a variety of options including physical therapy, spinal decompression, chiropractic adjustment, cold laser therapy, the Graston Technique, Kinesio Taping, and pain management.
Pain felt in the neck can come from many disorders and diseases of the tissue including degenerative disc disease, pinched nerve, herniated disc, and whiplash - just to name a few.
Degeneration of the intervertebral disc, often called degenerative disc disease (DDD) of the spine, is a condition that can be painful and can greatly affect the quality of one's life. While disc degeneration is a normal part of aging and for most people is not a problem, for certain individuals a degenerated disc can cause severe constant chronic pain.
Whiplash and whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) represent a range of injuries to the neck caused by or related to a sudden distortion of the neck.
A pinched nerve occurs when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues - such as bones, cartilage, muscles or tendons. This pressure disrupts the nerve's function, causing pain, tingling, numbness or weakness.
