Non-Surgical Neck Pain Relief Treatments Milwaukee
Neck Pain Management from Neurology & Pain Treatment Center
The neck is a very vulnerable and important part of the body. As a result, any type of pain to the neck can be debilitating. Dr. Neal Pollack of the Neurology & Pain Treatment Center in Milwaukee is here to offer a non-surgical alternative to relieve your neck pain.
Most adults will experience some form of neck pain in their lives. This condition is common and may result from a variety of causes, including:
- Overuse and inappropriate positioning trigger strains
- Joint disease produces arthritis
- Injuries alter connective tissue attachments
- Disc protrusions
- Torticollis (wry neck)
- Nerve root abnormalities
- Poor posture
It is not unheard of for patients to develop sudden neck pain with no obvious cause. Known as “nonspecific neck pain”, this condition can be caused by anything from muscle strain to more severe sprains. Fortunately, a personal consultation with Dr. Pollack will lead to diagnosis and, most importantly, a healthy treatment plan.
Risks of Neck Surgery
Surgery on the neck is very risky. Even before you go under the knife, a bad reaction to anesthesia can cause complications. The surgery itself can cause damage to nearby structures including the spinal cord, vocal cords, or esophagus.
Once surgery is complete, the incision site could become infected if not regularly cared for and cleaned. And during recovery, eating and drinking will be difficult for a period of days. Hospitalization can last up to a week without complications. A neck brace may be needed for additional support while healing.
