Joint Injections – Facet joints are common causes of neck pain. Our medical staff offers tradition injections with steroids and / or a natural anti-inflammatory and pain reliever - Sarapin.
Trigger Point Injection Therapy – Muscles of the neck/upper back are also common causes of pain. Trigger points found in theses muscles can be alleviated with a quick, painless injection performed by our trained medical staff.
We may also recommend Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy to aid in pain relief and tissue healing. For some patients, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy may be indicated. Neck braces may be appropriate to add support and stability to the painful areas, particularly during the acute stages. Postural correction braces may also be of benefit. Our staff utilizes Physical Rehabilitation to strengthen the stabilizing muscles that will aid in the long term recovery process and help prevent future episodes.
