Neck Pain

Muscle Strain

Like every other muscle in your body, the muscles in your neck can be overworked and get strained over time. This is usually the result of:
Neck Pain

  • Bad posture (constantly being hunched over)
  • Bending or turning your neck for extended periods of time
  • Reading in bed
  • Persistent teeth grinding

If you continue to overexert your neck muscles, it could lead to chronic pain, which is more difficult to recover from.

Disk Disorders

As you get older, the discs in between your vertebrae start to dry out which causes the space in your spinal column to become narrower. In some situations, the discs can herniate, meaning the the actual material of the disc can burst out of the layer covering it. This makes the area extremely sensitive and the nerves will be easily irritable.

Injuries

One of the most common neck injuries is a result of rear-end car collisions that cause whiplash. Whiplash is when your head quickly jolts forward and then backwards like the movement of a whip. When this happens, the soft tissues in your neck stretch out beyond their capabilities, resulting in chronic pain.

Neck Pain Treament In Beverly Hills, CA

At BZ Pain, we offer several different types of treatment for neck pain in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, CA.

Some of the most common ways to treat neck pain include:

  • Medicine– Over the counter medicine such as aspirin and ibuprofen can help relieve the pain for acute neck injuries. For chronic or severe short term neck pain, there are also prescription pain relievers available.
  • Rest– Sometimes the best remedy for neck pain is to just let your muscles rest for a little bit. Since the muscles are constantly working to hold up your head, walking and sitting for long periods of time can cause additional strain. Lay your head down every now and then to let your neck rest.
  • Physical therapy– We can help you soothe your neck pain through gentle stretching and physical therapy sessions.
