Cervical Spine Conditions in Santa Monica, CA
Los Angeles Treatment for Neck Conditions
If you experience chronic neck pain, you may need to see a specialist. Having chronic neck pain is usually due to having a soft tissue sprain, such as the sprain of a ligament or tendon, or a muscle strain. These injuries can also be caused by whiplash or another form of sudden force.
Often, one hopes that the pains will improve with light medication and over time without surgery. Sometimes this is the case, but unfortunately, sometimes the neck pain continues or worsens. If your neck pain has worsened and you believe you may need surgery, it’s likely time to look into a surgical or treatment center, such as Marina Spine Center.
