As an expert orthopedic specialist at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Our practice is committed to delivering personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs.

Neck pain and problems encompass a wide range of conditions affecting the cervical spine, including but not limited to cervical disc herniation, cervical spondylosis, whiplash injury, cervical radiculopathy, and cervical spine arthritis. These conditions can result from various factors such as poor posture, overuse, trauma, degenerative changes, or underlying medical conditions. At Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of neck pain and problems, offering comprehensive care to alleviate pain and improve neck function.

When you experience neck pain, it can significantly impact your mobility, comfort, and overall quality of life, making it challenging to perform daily activities or maintain proper posture. Our team of orthopedic specialists begins the evaluation process with a thorough assessment of your medical history, followed by a physical examination and may utilize imaging studies such as X-rays, MRI, or CT scans to accurately diagnose the underlying cause of your neck pain.

Treatment options for neck pain and problems at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists may include:

  • Conservative therapies: Initially, we may recommend conservative treatments such as rest, heat or ice therapy, activity modification, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and physical therapy to reduce pain and inflammation, improve posture, and promote muscle relaxation.
  • Medications: Depending on the underlying cause of your neck pain, we may prescribe medications such as muscle relaxants, neuropathic pain medications, or corticosteroid injections to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation associated with conditions such as cervical disc herniation or arthritis.
  • Physical therapy: Our experienced physical therapists design specialized exercise programs focused on strengthening the muscles of the neck and upper back, improving flexibility, and promoting proper posture and body mechanics to alleviate neck pain and prevent recurrence.
  • Minimally invasive procedures: For certain conditions such as cervical disc herniation or cervical radiculopathy, we offer minimally invasive procedures such as epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, or medial branch blocks to provide targeted pain relief and improve neck function.
  • Surgical intervention: In cases of severe or persistent neck pain that does not respond to conservative treatments, we may recommend surgical intervention such as cervical discectomy, cervical fusion, or artificial disc replacement to address structural abnormalities and restore cervical spine stability.

Our team of experts will work with you to find the best treatment plan for your needs.

We offer everything from chiropractic care to massage therapy to acupuncture. And our state-of-the-art facilities are equipped with the latest technology to ensure you get the best possible care.
