What kind of doctor treats neck pain?
Sometimes a primary care physician can help with neck pain, but they will likely refer a patient to a specialist like a pain management specialist. This type of professional is uniquely qualified to handle acute or chronic neck pain. It’s possible that an orthopedist will be able to help you, but a pain management specialist may be able to do more for you and can refer you to an orthopedist if necessary.
With a pain management specialist, you’ll be getting professional diagnosis and treatment for your pain. Your specialist will be able to help you with general, acute, or chronic pain and provide any of a number of services for relief.
Will chronic neck pain go away?
Chronic pain, by definition, is pain that has been continuing for over 6 weeks. Sometimes this pain can go away by itself, but this depends on the underlying condition causing the pain. Other times the pain doesn’t go away at all and needs professional treatment. Proper treatment can bring relief much more quickly or at least minimize the pain a great deal. If you’re suffering from neck pain, call our clinic to learn more about it and how we can help.
What are the treatments for neck pain?
Here at Modern Pain Management, we’ll do everything we can to mitigate, manage, or eliminate your neck pain. We offer many solutions for neck pain, like:
