Neck Pain and Arm Pain Q & A

Beneficial Health Medical Center

What are the reasons for neck pain?

Neck pain can be caused by a variety of conditions, including:

  • Whiplash: Neck pain being the most common and most obvious indicator of whiplash after an auto accident
  • Degenerative disc disease: Developing as your discs wear with age
  • Neck strain: Developing either after an accident or through repetitive motion
  • Herniated disc: Developing after an injury
  • Pinched nerves: Occurring after an injury or over time as the spine becomes misaligned

What is the treatment for neck pain?

Neck pain is treated in several different methods, and a combination approach often works best. Dr. William Knop and the whole Beneficial Health Medical Center team work together to make sure that your neck pain is fully resolved. Your treatment may include:

  • Chiropractic care
  • Physical therapy techniques such as moist heat therapy, cryotherapy, interferential electrical muscle stimulation, and ultrasound therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Trigger point injections
  • Medications (if necessary)

Why does arm pain happen?

The cause of arm pain can include:

  • Injury
  • Overuse
  • Stenosis
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • A herniated disc
  • Pinched nerve

In conditions like stenosis and herniated disc, nerve pain may originate in other parts of the body but will then travel down the arm. There are many areas in which the nerve can be impinged causing different types of symptoms. But here at Beneficial Health we are well trained to differentiate and diagnose which of these are the cause of the problem as well as being able to help you treat these conditions. While carpal tunnel pain is usually focused on the wrist and hand, it's not unusual for the pain to move up the arm as far as the elbow. No matter what the reason for the arm pain, there are treatments to give you relief.

How is arm pain treated?

In many cases, the best treatment for arm pain is to treat the underlying condition. This means that we will treat conditions like stenosis, herniated disc, and carpal tunnel first, which ever one is found to be the cause of the problem. This will relieve not only the main symptoms of the condition but also the arm pain associated with it.

Chiropractic treatment is gentle, non-invasive, and highly effective for most conditions that cause arm pain. Many patients also derive great benefit from physical therapy treatments like:

  • Moist heat
  • Cryotherapy
  • Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
  • Ultrasound
  • Cold-laser therapy

Massage therapy can be beneficial in many cases of arm pain as well.
