What Is Neck Pain and What Are the Symptoms?

Neck pain is a common complaint affecting around two-thirds of adults. It can range in severity from mild stiffness to persistent, severe pain. Common symptoms of neck pain include difficulty turning and/or tilting the head, arm, and shoulder pain, muscle tightness or spasms, tingling sensations, headaches, and blurred vision. If left untreated neck pain can interfere with normal activities such as sleeping, exercising, and even basic day-to-day tasks. It’s important to understand the causes of neck discomfort and take the necessary steps for appropriate treatment to minimize long-term consequences.


What Are Some of the Causes of Neck Pain?

Neck pain is a common problem, often resulting from muscle strain, poor posture, overuse, or injuries. Poor ergonomics, such as sitting in an improper position at a computer for long periods, can cause misalignment of the spine, leading to stiffness and tension in the neck. Degenerative disorders like arthritis can also cause neck pain. Emotional stress from work or family life contributes to this pain by adding tension to the muscles of the neck and shoulders. People with neck problems need to note that if their symptoms don’t improve after a few days of self-care and over-the-counter medications, they should see their doctor for further treatment.


How Do Our Specialists Treat Neck Pain?

At Advanced Neurospine Associates, we use a collaborative approach to treating neck pain. Our experienced team takes into account the patient’s medical history and lifestyle to create an individualized treatment plan. This may include medications, physical therapy, and interventional procedures such as epidural steroid injections, medial branch nerve blocks, and/or radiofrequency ablation. We recognize the unique needs of each patient and understand that the same type of care is not beneficial for everyone. By combining skillful expertise with a comprehensive evaluation, our team provides tailored, effective care for resolving neck pain quickly and safely.


Epidural Steroid Injections

Epidural steroid injections can be powerful tools to ameliorate neck pain caused by a variety of issues. In many cases, these injections are used to reduce inflammation in and around the spinal nerve roots. The anti-inflammatory drugs contained within the injections work by reducing swelling and irritation in the surrounding nerve tissue, helping to alleviate pain. These injections should generally only be used as part of an integrated plan that also involves lifestyle modifications such as exercise and comprehensive behavioral therapies when appropriate. Physicians will often monitor patients closely throughout treatment for any undesired side effects or indications of changes in the underlying condition. Ultimately, epidural steroid injections can provide much-needed relief for neck pain sufferers when employed cautiously in conjunction with other effective treatment methods.


Medial Branch Nerve Blocks

Medial Branch Nerve Blocks are a novel treatment option for patients suffering from neck pain caused by facet joint dysfunction. They use an injection of local anesthetic at the specific nerve connected to the painful area. The goal of the injection is to disrupt the source of pain transmission and provide long-term relief or even permanent resolution without surgery. When performing the procedure, a very thin needle is inserted near the nerves with guidance from an X-ray, injecting the medication in the exact location that causes pain. This minimally invasive procedure is highly effective and has virtually no side effects, which makes it one of the best options currently available for relieving neck pain and other related conditions.


Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency Ablation has become an increasingly popular treatment option for people suffering from neck pain. It involves a minimally-invasive procedure in which targeted amounts of heat are applied to a nerve, blocking pain signals that are sent to the brain so patients experience a prolonged respite from their discomfort. While the frequency and duration of this reprieve may vary for each individual, it is usually a safe and effective option for those seeking long-term relief from chronic neck pain. Additionally, since Radiofrequency Ablation doesn’t require surgery or medication as part of the recovery process, there are very few risks associated with this approach. For prospective patients wondering if this is the right treatment choice for them, consulting with a medical professional can help you make an informed decision about your well-being.


Are There Any Potential Side Effects Associated With Interventional Therapies for Neck Pain?

Interventional treatments for neck pain can be beneficial in alleviating pain, decreasing inflammation, and improving mobilization. However, with any intervention, there is a potential risk of side effects. Depending on the type of treatment performed, possible side effects may include allergic reactions to medications or local anesthesia, infection at sites used for injections or nerve blocks, increased pain (or return of previous symptoms), and nerve damage. It is important to discuss the known risks associated with each procedure before proceeding with treatment. An experienced clinician should explain all options available for managing your neck pain and provide a complete overview of the potential side effects. If you have any further questions about side effects or other concerns regarding interventional treatments for neck pain, please consult with one of our neck pain doctors.



Neck pain is a common condition that can be caused by several different factors. How we treat neck pain depends on the severity of the condition and may range from over-the-counter medication to more invasive procedures like epidural steroid injections or radiofrequency ablation. Potential side effects associated with interventional therapies for neck pain include infection, temporary nerve damage, bleeding, or numbness. If you are experiencing neck pain, it is important to consult with a medical professional to determine the best course of treatment for you.
