General Neck Pain

There are many causes for neck pain. Our Spine Center specialists help find the source and recommend a treatment plan.

Neck pain is a common issue that can range from a nuisance to a debilitating condition. While most neck pain is caused by a simple strain or pinched nerve and typically resolves on its own, there are instances when neck pain can be chronic and caused by something more serious.

At the Kelsey-Seybold Spine Center, we begin by determining the cause of your neck pain. Overuse and overextension are the main reasons for minor, temporary neck pain. In these cases, our spine specialists will provide treatment through methods like medication, chiropractic care, or yoga.

If you have pain that has lasted several weeks or even months, it's likely that the cause is an issue with the cervical spine. Some possible causes include:

  • Cervical degenerative disc disease
  • Cervical herniated disc
  • Cervical osteoarthritis
  • Cervical spinal stenosis with myelopathy
  • Cervical foraminal stenosis


Even in cases of chronic pain, our spine specialists will pursue evidence-based, non-surgical treatments, which may include physical therapy, acupuncture, medication, or trigger point injections. But if surgery is the best option, our neurosurgeon affiliates will deliver the best possible surgical treatment.

If you are experiencing unexplained or chronic neck pain, the spine specialists at the Kelsey-Seybold Spine Center in Houston can run necessary diagnostic tests and provide a plan to alleviate your neck pain. Contact us today to make an appointment.
