Neck and Shoulder Relief


Neck and Shoulder Relief

Neck and shoulder pain relief usually becomes necessary because of a soft tissue injury, such as a strained muscle caused by sleeping with your head in an awkward position or a ligament sprained during a nasty fall. More often than not, over-the-counter pain medicine can sufficiently manage the associated discomfort until the injury heals.

However, more serious conditions can also affect the cervical spine – the seven vertebrae at the top of the backbone – and lead to neck or shoulder pain. These include bulging disc, herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, cervical spinal stenosis and bone spurs. When one of these conditions results in compression or irritation of a nerve root or the spinal cord, it can produce symptoms like pain, tingling, numbness or muscle weakness in the neck, shoulders, arms or hands.

These symptoms normally can be managed through a program of conservative treatment for shoulder and neck pain relief. In most patients, discomfort will diminish and fade over time, especially in conjunction with a course of non-surgical pain management methods that include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Prescription or over-the-counter pain medicine
  • Chiropractic therapy
  • Cortisone injections
  • Shoulder and neck pain relief exercises
  • Rest
  • Behavior modification

Sometimes, surgery is the only option for long-term neck and shoulder pain relief. Thousands have discovered an alternative to traditional open spine surgery at Laser Spine Institute. The surgeons at Laser Spine Institute use state-of-the-art techniques to perform minimally invasive, outpatient procedures that can help you find relief from neck pain.
