Northwest Indiana Neck Pain Specialists

Neck pain is a leading cause of discomfort throughout the U.S. Thousands of Americans deal with neck pain every day, ranging from the occasional ache to debilitating pain and soreness. Neck pain can originate from an obvious source such as a sports injury or car accident, but it can also be caused by the long-term effects of simple, everyday actions such as using a laptop. Pain Control Associates, LLC is dedicated to helping patients manage all forms of neck pain through a series of different treatment options.

Causes of Neck Pain

The neck is a sensitive part of the body, and many daily activities can put a strain on it. Often, neck pain results from pinched nerves caused when neck vertebrae shift. Vertebrae can shift during a sudden trauma, or from the wear and tear of daily life.  

Here are some of the most common causes of shifting vertebrae:

  • Sleeping wrong
  • Herniated disk
  • Pain following a surgery
  • Whiplash
  • Axial neck pain (Spondylosis)
  • Pain from posture
  • Awkward neck positioning
  • Neck overreach

Tips for Preventing Neck Pain

With the right practices, you can avoid many causes of chronic neck pain. Some of the best practices to remember include:

  • Make regular exercise and movement part of your daily routine.
  • Keep good posture when sitting or standing for long periods.
  • Set your computer monitor at eye level to avoid leaning, and zoom in to get a better view of your screen instead of trying to get closer to it.
  • Sleep on your back or side with a firm pillow under your head.

Medical Attention May be Necessary for Severe Neck Pain

Neck pain that is left untreated can quickly begin to reduce your quality of life. You may benefit from medical attention if:

  • You are unable to turn your head due to pain.
  • You are taking regular pain medication for your back or neck.
  • An injury or trauma resulted in long-lasting and/or intense pain.
  • You are experiencing loss of circulation or tingling in your hands.
  • Your pain has not decreased after a few days.

Treatments at Pain Control Associates, LLC include surgery, prescribed and over-the-counter medications, lifestyle modification, non-surgical procedures including epidural injections and nerve blocks, and holistic solutions such as physical therapy.
