Neck & Back Pain
Comprehensive Treatments for Neck and Back Pain
Back and neck pain is so common that practically everyone will experience it at some point in their lives. But whether your neck or back pain is acute (lasting for a short duration) or chronic (lasting more than a few weeks or months), it can make your life miserable.
Fortunately, the dedicated anesthesiologists and pain management specialists at Southern Regional Pain Services in Little Rock, Arkansas have the expertise to diagnose and effectively treat your neck or back pain, allowing you to lead a more active and productive life.
Your neck and back muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, vertebrae and discs are essential components that work in tandem to enable movement. When healthy, they are quite durable. However, they are vulnerable to injury and disease, and if any of the tissue or bones in your back or neck are damaged, it can cause mild to severe pain resulting from:
- Bone spurs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs
- Pinched nerves
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Spinal stenosis
- Sports injuries
- Sprains and strains
Your pain may also stem from the facet joints in your spine that become inflamed and cause soreness and stiffness.
At Southern Regional Pain Services, we treat neck and back pain by first reviewing your medical history and assessing your symptoms. We then perform a physical examination to test your range of motion and zero in on the source of your pain by checking your reflex and nerve responses.
We are affiliated with various local hospital and other healthcare providers, which means we have access to information culled from a range of diagnostic tools and imaging technology, such as X-rays, bone scans, CT scans, MRIs, electromyography (EMG), and nerve conduction velocity tests. This enables us to diagnose and assess the extent of any damage and recommend appropriate treatment.
The encouraging news is that most neck and back pain is caused by soft tissue damage that heals on its own with rest. In the meantime, discomfort can be relieved with anti-inflammatory medication or wearing a soft, supportive collar or brace.
