Neck Pain Solutions in Richardson, TX

neck pain spine orthopedicNeck pain is usually classified as pain occurring anywhere in the area from just below your head to the upper shoulders. It can limit movement of your head and shoulders, and may at times radiate down your upper back and through your arms.

Making the right decision on which orthopedic spine surgeon to see regarding neck pain is as important as the recommended treatment plan for the pain. Orthopedic spine surgeon Dr. Richard A. Marks and his qualified medical team have the experience to properly diagnose and treat neck pain.

Common Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain is frequently caused by activities such as prolonged use of a keyboard or staring at a computer screen, overhead work, or sleeping with a twisted neck. These are typical activities which stress the neck muscles, and may lead to strains or spasms in the neck area. However, there are other more serious causes such as:

  • A motor vehicle accident
  • Narrowing of the spinal canal in the neck such as Spinal Stenosis
  • Impact injury to the neck

Neck pain may be muscular in nature, such as a muscle strain, causing stiffness and even tenderness. Neck related symptoms can include numbness in your hand, weakness of your arm, and even tingling down your leg. While there are many possible causes of neck related problems, our team strongly recommends an examination to help determine its source.

Treating Neck Pain

Neck pain that is chronic may be an indicator of a more serious underlying problem and would require a focused treatment plan rather than conservative treatment options. Regardless, a thorough examination by our orthopedic spine surgeon, Dr. Marks, is recommended. Based on his findings, a proper treatment plan can be established.
