Expert Evaluation and Care for Neck Pain at PrimeCare Urgent Care

Neck pain can be a discomforting and limiting condition that may arise from various causes. At PrimeCare Urgent Care, we specialize in evaluating and treating neck pain to help you find relief and restore mobility.

Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain can result from several factors, including:

  • Muscle Strain: Often due to poor posture, sudden movements, or overuse of neck muscles.
  • Cervical Disc Degeneration: Wear and tear of spinal discs in the neck over time.
  • Whiplash: Neck injury commonly caused by sudden acceleration or deceleration, such as in car accidents.
  • Arthritis: Inflammation of the joints in the neck, leading to stiffness and pain.
  • Nerve Compression: Such as cervical radiculopathy, where nerves in the neck are pinched or irritated.

Evaluation and Diagnosis

When you visit PrimeCare Urgent Care for neck pain, our experienced healthcare providers will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms. This may include reviewing your medical history, performing a physical examination, assessing range of motion, and possibly ordering diagnostic tests such as X-rays or MRI scans.

Treatment Options

Treatment for neck pain focuses on relieving discomfort and addressing the underlying cause. Our approach may include:

  • Pain Management: Through medications, such as anti-inflammatories or muscle relaxants.
  • Physical Therapy: Including exercises and stretching to improve neck strength and flexibility.
  • Heat or Cold Therapy: To reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.
  • Postural Correction: Educating on proper ergonomics and neck-strengthening exercises.

When to Seek Medical Attention

While some neck pain may resolve with self-care measures, it’s important to seek medical attention if you experience:

  • Persistent or Severe Pain: Especially if accompanied by numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms or legs.

  • Difficulty Moving the Neck: Along with headaches, dizziness, or visual disturbances.
