Neck Pain Management

Pain located in the neck is a common medical condition. Neck pain can come from a number of disorders and diseases and can involve any of the tissues in the neck. Examples of common conditions causing neck pain are degenerative disc disease, neck strain, neck injury such as in whiplash, a herniated disc, or a pinched nerve.

Anyone can have neck pain arising from the neck muscles,vertebral bodies,intervertebral discs(the shock absorbers between the neck bones) or facet joints.This can be controlled/relived to a great extent by changes in lifestyle,posture,excercise and appropriate nerve blocks.The cervical spine is a marvelous and complex structure. It is capable of supporting a head weighing 15 or more pounds while moving in several directions. No other region of the spine has such freedom of movement. This combination however, complexity and mobility, make the neck susceptible to pain and injury.This complex structure includes 7 small vertebrae, intervertebral discs to absorb shock, joints, the spinal cord, 8 nerve roots, vascular elements, 32 muscles, and ligaments.

Our physical examination includes observing the your posture, range of motion, and physical condition. Any movement generating pain is carefully noted. Our physician will palpate or feel the curvature of the spine, vertebral alignment, and detect muscle spasm.Often a group of nerves, called a plexus or ganglion, that causes pain to a specific organ or body region can be blocked with the injection of medication into a specific area of the body. The injection of this nerve-numbing substance is called a nerve block.

  • Therapeutic nerve blocks are used to treat painful conditions. Such nerve blocks contain local anesthetic that can be used to control acute pain.
  • Diagnostic nerve blocks are used to determine sources of pain. These blocks typically contain an anesthetic with a known duration of relief.
  • Prognostic nerve blocks predict the outcomes of given treatments. For example, a nerve block may be performed to determine if more permanent treatments (such as surgery) would be successful in treating pain
  • Preemptive nerve blocks are meant to prevent subsequent pain from a procedure that can cause problems including phantom limb pain
  • Nerve blocks can be used, in some cases, to avoid surgery

At Meenakshi Pain Management Center, we have treated several patients with Neck Pain. Dr. Yashwant Nankar & Dr. Meenakshi Nankar has experience of several years to treat the patients of Neck Pain and avoided surgeries of many patients.

Our Treatments

Spinal Cord Stimulator

A Spinal Cord Stimulator or Dorsal Column Stimulator is a type of implantable neuromodulation device that is used to send electrical signals to select areas of the spinal cord for the treatment of certain pain conditions.It is consideration for people who have a pain condition not responded to conservative therapy.

Nerve Root Block

A nerve root block is an injection of local anesthetic (numbing medicine) and steroid injected under X-ray guidance into the area where the nerve exits the spinal column. A nerve root block is usually ordered by your doctor for pain in the arm or leg that follows the path of a single nerve.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a medical procedure in which part of the electrical conduction system of the heart, tumor or other dysfunctional tissue is ablated using the heat generated from medium frequency alternating current.

Epidural Injection

Epidural steroid injection is a technique in which corticosteroids and a local anesthetic are injected into the epidural space around the spinal cord in an effort to improve spinal stenosis, spinal disc herniation, or
both.

Neuromodulation

Neuromodulation is "the alteration of nerve activity through targeted delivery of a stimulus, such as electrical stimulation or chemical agents, to specific neurological sites in the body".

Electrical Nerve Stimulation

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low-voltage electrical current for pain relief.TENS is typically done with a TENS unit, a small battery-operated device.
