Neck Pain: Pinched Nerves and Arm Pain No More

neck pain treatment manhattan nycNeck pain is another one of those problems that can leave you feeling totally lost. It invades your everyday life, making even simple things feel impossible. Your quality of life suffers and it can get depressing if it’s long term. Like back pain, the pain can be nearly intolerable, and it often gets people to consider riskier treatments like those prescribed by surgeons. Surgery should almost never be the first line of defense in cases of neck pain. Honestly, who doesn’t want to explore their options before taking drastic measures like choosing the surgeon’s table? And who in NYC has time to be out of work for weeks recovering from surgery?

Living Well Medical does things differently. We put everything we have into designing programs for healing and pain relief that rely mainly on the body’s own innate potential. No painkillers, no surgeons. Only the best in non-surgical methods like NYC physical therapy, massage, the Graston Technique, and non-surgical spinal decompression make up our treatment programs. In some cases, neck pain that radiates into the arms is caused by a pinched nerve in the cervical spine; spinal manipulation and manual therapies like chiropractic can be helpful in times like these.

In event that you do have a pinched nerve, there is the potential for the cause to be a herniated disc. Our herniated disc treatment in NYC, often brings together spinal decompression to help the body heal the herniation and strength training and exercise to provide more muscular support of spinal muscles, potentially preventing future re-injury. Flexibility and range of motion should also be improved during treatment.

No matter what the source of your neck pain, we’re here to help. Get help for your neck pain at Living Well Medical in NYC. Spinal decompression and physical therapy are only a small part of what we offer to patients like you who are in pain and want it to stop. Call our front desk today at 212-645-8151 and make your appointment to meet with our experts. Remember, surgery isn’t the only option – there is hope for non-surgical relief.

What Exactly is a Herniated Disc?

As a pretty common injury, understanding what’s happening with a herniated disc is also a common concern among my patients at my back pain treatment center in NYC. Since there’s no time like the present, I figured I could satisfy those who are curious with a quick blog post on the anatomy of the disc and this particular condition.

Over the course of our lives, spinal discs that support the proper fherniated disc treatment nycunction and shock absorption of lose some of that resilience. They dry up, they degenerate, and generally don’t perform their job as well as before. That’s why, in general, the people we treat for herniated discs tend to be middle-aged and older. Of course, we do get younger people, too – especially when accidents and contact sports are involved – they just represent a smaller number of patients.

The important thing to remember is that age definitely plays a role in how susceptible a person is to disc problems like herniation.

Anyway, when a spinal disc is overloaded, pushed beyond it’s weight-bearing capacity, it will either bulge or herniate. In a herniation, the outer band of the disc, the annulus, tears allowing the inner part of the disc, the nucleus, to spill out. For some people, a herniation will cause no pain, but for others, the nucleus can press against the spinal nerves. This compression can cause excruciating pain, numbness, and even muscle weakness in time. Hopefully, that gives you an idea of just what a herniated disc is.

Okay, so what about treatment for a herniated disc? What then?

At our NYC back pain center, we put together a multidisciplinary treatment program that involves elements of spinal decompression, physical therapy, massage therapy and other non-surgical pain relief therapies to perform a potent combination to stop the pain from herniated discs. Living Well Medical has years of experience getting patients back to health and wellness with these methods. If your back is aching and you can’t take it anymore, give us a call today at 212-645-8151. We want to help you feel like your old self.
