Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

Neck pain can be caused by any trauma, repetitive movement, or condition affecting the spine and its associated bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments. Some of the most common conditions that cause neck pain are:

  • Intersegmental joint dysfunction
  • Facet syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Whiplash
  • Sprains and strains
  • Torticollis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Disc herniations

Many cases of neck pain resolve within two to four weeks, especially if treatment is begun early. When treatment is delayed or the pain lasts longer than two weeks, you may be dealing with a chronic condition that requires more care or changes to your lifestyle, like postural correction or incorporating specific exercises to reduce your pain.

How is neck pain treated?

At Miami Spine Clinic, Dr. Thompson offers a variety of noninvasive treatment options for neck pain like:

  • Hands-on adjustments
  • Patient education
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Rehab exercises and stretches
  • Physiotherapy, like electrical stimulation or traction

Dr. Thompson develops an individualized care plan based on your condition, symptoms, and health goals so that you get treatment you're comfortable with and can recover as quickly as possible. He walks you through the treatment plan and explains what to expect and answers any questions you have before beginning care.

How long will it take for my neck pain to go away?

Most types of neck pain resolve in about two to four weeks, though chronic cases may take several months to heal. If you’ve been in an auto accident, had a slip or fall injury, or sustained other trauma to your neck, it can take longer than four weeks for your muscles and ligaments to heal.

To determine how long your treatment takes and how many visits you need, Dr. Thompson performs a thorough exam and takes X-rays of your neck, if needed. Dr. Thompson recommends regular appointments that are spaced out weekly or monthly to reduce your pain as quickly as possible and get you back to your normal range of motion.

Dr. Thompson provides maintenance care, if desired, which is a helpful option if you have chronic pain, headaches, or arthritis, and require ongoing care when your pain flares up.
