Our team of award-winning neck pain relief experts with backgrounds in orthopedics, neurosurgery, pain care, and rehabilitation will create a long term treatment plan individualized to you, your unique pain and your goals. We conquer neck pain without surgery in most cases using cutting edge neck pain relief techniques (some of which are completely new to pain care and only offered by our doctors).
Have you ever woke up with a stiff neck? Neck pain is most often caused by sleeping in the wrong position, poor posture, sports injury, repetitive motions, whiplash from a car accident, or degenerative neck conditions. Neck injuries that affect the nerves generally produce weakness, numbness, a burning sensation, or an electrical shock sensation that starts at the neck and extends down one or more arms.
Here in South Florida, we have noticed an influx of patients coming in with whiplash (a neck injury in which the head is thrown first into hyperextension and then quickly forward into flexion). It's most often due to car accidents, but may be caused by sports injuries, falls, or trauma. After a patient experiences whiplash, we diagnose what type of neck injury the patient is suffering from (most often neck sprain or a herniated disc of the neck). Whiplash has been known to damage joints or discs, which in turn irritates spinal nerve roots or the spinal cord in which nerve symptoms can be extremely painful.
For some patients, non-surgical pain relief techniques might not be the best treatment plan for them. When your pain calls for surgery, our neurosurgeons may suggest minimally invasive and advanced surgical approaches such as the mild® treatment (minimally invasive lumbar decompression) or DRG Neurostimulation (dorsal root ganglion neurostimulation).
Patients suffering from acute neck pain may be prescribed pain relief from in-office epidural steroid injections, soft tissue injections, or trigger point injections. Often anti-inflammatories are prescribed in conjunction with other acute pain treatments and the condition resolves. In other patients, acute pain is a precursor to a life of chronic pain, so it is important to determine the cause of pain and administer the correct pain relief procedure for lasting relief of chronic neck pain.
