Our neck doctors at Flagstaff Bone & Joint are recognized experts in the diagnosis and treatment of neck injuries and conditions.
Supporting your head and allowing for motion, the neck is made up of vertebrae, bones, ligaments, and muscles. Typically, pain in the neck is temporary, although in some cases, it can be an indicator of a more serious injury or disorder.
When to See a Neck Doctor Near You
A patient should seek medical evaluation by one of our neck specialists if experiencing:
- Radiating pain to the shoulder, arm, or hand
- Weakness of the arm or hand
- Sensory disturbance/sensitivity of the arms and legs
- Arm or hand clumsiness or numbness
When left untreated, a neck condition or injury can cause further damage, and you could be left dealing with chronic pain, weakness, or numbness. Specialized treatment should be sought to ensure that a proper diagnosis is made which may include a recommendation for surgery.
Common conditions and injuries patients suffer from and seek care for include:
- Muscle strains
- Osteoarthritis or worn joints
- Cervical nerve compression or herniated discs or bone spurs
- Acute injuries such as whiplash
- Cervical spinal stenosis
- Disc herniations
- Cervical kyphosis
Patients receive an extensive workup to determine the cause of their pain. The assessment may include EMG/nerve conduction studies, diagnostic injection therapy, physical therapy, or additional imaging. Our specialists work with each patient to determine the appropriate nonoperative treatments available for their pain, or if indicated, a surgical consultation with one of our spine surgeons.
Our doctors specialize in the following surgeries and treatments:
- Cervical disc arthroplasty
- Cervical laminoplasty
- Minimally invasive surgical techniques
