Poor posture, repetitive motion injury, as well as sports injuries can lead to neck and arm pain. Please refer to our video blog post to learn the most common sources of neck and arm pain.
Intervertebral discs are part of your body’s weight bearing and motion systems. Cervical discography can help diagnose which discs are painful.
Along with the discs, the cervical facet joints are at the core of your weight bearing and motion. Injuries to these joints, such as whiplash, or degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis, are the most common causes of neck pain. Painful facet joints can be diagnosed with medial branch blocks and treated with radiofrequency denervation.
Your nerve roots can become irritated by herniated discs or overgrown bone due to osteoarthritis of the spine. This causes both neck and arm pain. Painful nerves can be diagnosed and treated with selective nerve blocks or cervical transforaminal epidural injections.
With our diagnostic approach, we use time-tested algorithms to find the sources of your neck and arm pain. Through a carefully planned interventional approach, we use injection techniques to determine where your neck and arm pain comes from. Please refer to our videos below to find out more.
Once we established the correct diagnosis, appropriate options of treatment will be discussed and applied. In some cases, surgery-sparing regenerative treatments may be helpful. New research gives us hope to treat cervical disc pain with stem cells derived from your own bodily tissues.
