What causes neck pain?

Neck pain is a common problem that affects most people at some time during their lives. Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:
• Poor alignment of the vertebrae (subluxation)
• Herniated discs in the neck
• Bone spurs
• Arthritis
• Whiplash or other trauma
• Forward head posture
• Tension in the neck muscles

In some cases, patients may experience neck pain because of a combination of different causes. For example, a patient may have a herniated disc that is aggravated by tension in the neck and a forward head posture.

How does Innovative Medical Center treat neck pain?

The doctors at Innovative Medical Center begin the treatment of neck pain by examining the patient thoroughly to determine the factors that may be contributing to the pain. Once the doctor has identified the source of the pain, they will create a treatment plan that addresses these issues. Innovative Medical Center’s treatment plans typically include a customized combination of therapies, including corrective exercises, physical therapy, trigger point injections, soft tissue massage, and spinal manipulation.

How does Innovative Medical Center’s treatment benefit patients with neck pain?

Each of the therapies Innovative Medical Center recommends plays a different role in the treatment of neck pain. For example, trigger point injections is designed to alleviate pain in specific areas. Likewise, massage therapy soothes aching muscles and induces a state of relaxation for the patient. It also encourages oxygen-rich blood to flow to the treatment area, which promotes healing and removes harmful toxins.

Corrective exercises and physical therapy can improve neck pain by strengthening muscles that are weak or damaged, as well as by improving posture and stability. Finally, spinal manipulation can aid in the treatment of neck pain by resolving any problems with the patient’s alignment that may be contributing to the pain.

How soon will patients notice results?

Some patients experience a relief from neck pain after their first visit to Innovative Medical Center. However, many patients will need to attend more than one treatment session to achieve optimum results. Over time, the patient’s neck will become stronger, more stable, and less likely to cause pain.

Great staff! Love the results. Went in for my knee, and after the first injection, I started walking without a limp and with no pain.

I have been going here for 10 years. Dr roland helped my daughter have a higher quality of life. Every physical activity she does is due to him seeing what her drs refused to see. She had a seizure due to medication she was taking for chronic constipation. Dr Roland noticed she was off a bit and offered to take a look at her back. She was completely out of alignment. He helped her not have the struggles and she now is able to have full range of movement. The office staff is beyond friendly I have always felt welcome here.

I have had an amazing experience with the staff at IMC. I did stem cell replacement with our non verbal severely autistic son and the results were amazing for our family. It was a joy to go through this journey with them and I continue to take my children there and they have helped more then some MD's with treatments. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

What can I say about IMC? Let me start off by saying if every medical office cared about their patients the way these people do, we would have no need for doctors! They are about healing you. It’s as if they’re treating their own mother. The love and concern that they have for their patients is unbelievable! I went in there barely able to move. It took me literally about 5 minutes to get out of a chair, with the help of cane. I cannot believe how far I’ve come! Before my treatment was over I was actually able to take my daughter to an amusement park where I was on my feet walking all day! That ment so much to me! To be able to give my daughter something she deserves. Instead of being cooped up in the house because her dad was unable to leave the house because he was in too much pain. They not only brought hope back into my life. But they made it possible for my daughter to experience life, as she should. I’d give these people the world if I could! Because that’s what they gave to my daughter! Thank you IMC!
