Learn The Causes And Methods Of Diagnosis Of Neck Joint Pain At Northwest Specialty Hospital
Neck pain can be caused by many factors, including trauma (whiplash), posture problems, bone and joint abnormalities, and degenerative diseases. Discomfort usually occurs when parts of the neck are worn from aging, overuse or an underlying illness. Simple muscle strains are usually a result of prolonged activity or from sleeping in a particular position.
When you come to Northwest Specialty Hospital to seek neck pain relief, our North Idaho neurosurgeons will diagnose your problem through a thorough history and physical exam, and may perform x-rays or electrodiagnostic tests.
Neck Pain Relief In North Idaho Is Available Through ACDF Surgery
Pieces of cartilage called “discs” are located between the bones, or vertebrae in the neck. These discs can wear out over time, pinching nerves and causing intense discomfort, weakness and numbness in the neck and arms. Patients suffering from degenerative disc disease, who do not find relief from medication or physical therapy, may be candidates for a procedure known as anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, or ACDF. In ACDF surgery our experienced providers remove bad discs, decompress nerves, and insert grafts in the neck to fuse together the bones above and below the disc space. ACDF recipients report significant arm and neck pain relief in North Idaho after healing from surgery.
