There are many different causes of neck pain. Neck pain is often temporary and resolves on its own. If the situation persists medical diagnosis and treatment are needed.
Below are the most common conditions that we treat.
Torticollis (Wry Neck): Commonly known as a “crick or kink in the neck”.Read More
Torticollis is usually caused by muscle spasms, trigger points, vigorous movement or injury, or by sleeping in an awkward position. Common symptoms of torticollis are muscle pain, neck spasms, and the inability to turn the head.
Whiplash: Whiplash is an injury caused by the head being thrown first into hyperextension and then quickly forward.Read More
Whiplash most often occurs in car accidents, but may be caused by sports injuries or falls. Whiplash may result in a neck strain or sprain; it may also damage disks, nerves, and tendons. Common symptoms of whiplash include pain, weakness/numbness, tingling down the arm, dizziness, and stiffness.
Sprain or strain of the Neck: A sprain or strain of the neck is caused by an injury to the ligaments or muscles. Read More
Muscle strain or sprain can cause aches and stiffness that can spread to your upper arm, shoulder or upper back.
Pinched Nerve in the Neck: A pinched nerve is caused by a nerve root compression in the neck.Read More
A pinched nerve can cause shooting pain that spreads down the arm into the hand and fingers. Shooting pain can be more serious if it occurs in both arms or hands vs just one.
Stingers or Burners: “Stingers” or “Burners” are an injury to a group of nerves known as the brachial plexus Read More
A Stinger usually occurs during a contact sport such as football when the neck and shoulders can be over stretched during a hit. A brachial plexus stinger will only affect one side of the body; it generally results in a loss of sensation along with sudden burning pain of the entire arm, which usually resolves quickly within minutes.
The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.
This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
