Treatment Neck injury

Request an appointment

    Anatomically the neck is a complex part of the human body. The cervical spine contains bones, joints, soft tissue, and nerves that allow the head to be held and moved. Damage to one component affects the work of all others. If the consequences of minor neck injuries (for example, sprains or contusion of the cervical spine) bother a person for a several weeks, then complex injuries can lead to life-long consequences. A significant proportion of people get temporary or permanent disabilities. You should not neglect neck injury treatment and address your problem to the specialist in the medical center near you at once.

    Causes of Neck Injuries

    Neck injury

    The causes of neck traumas can be following:

    • Falling, colliding with another moving or stationary object/person (while skiing, snowboarding, etc.);
    • Monotonous efforts for a long period of time (work that requires sitting for the whole day);
    • Abrupt movements of the head or an uncomfortable position of the neck while sleeping.

    Symptoms of Injuries

    The symptoms include:

    • neck injury pain;
    • numbness;
    • tingling in the hands;
    • stiffness;
    • dizziness;
    • sleep disturbances;
    • headaches;
    • drowsiness;
    • weakness.

    Treatments for Neck Injuries

    If the damage to the neck is not critical then it is recommended to rest and take anti-inflammatory drugs. However, in severe conditions a person needs intensive rehabilitation and high quality medical care. After such injuries the neck injury recovery takes a few months.

    Nonsurgical Treatment

    Nonsurgical treatment should be complex and normally it requires the care from the specialists like a physical therapist, occupational therapist, neurologist, neuropsychologist, speech therapist and neuro-urologist.

    When a patient is admitted the professional staff of the medical clinic Touch of Health must assess his condition using special scales in the examination. Evaluation of the condition will help to correctly prescribe restorative procedures as well as predict the results of rehabilitation.

    Surgical Treatment

    Touch of Health offers a wide range of neck injury surgeries. These services include:

    • microsurgical discectomy;
    • laminectomy;
    • endoscopic surgery;
    • laser nucleoplasty.

    After Surgery

    On average, complete recovery takes 2 to 3 months. After any operation, immobilization of the neck is indicated using a special orthopedic collar. The rehabilitation also should have elements of physical activity. Aqua gymnastics, swimming and massage are highly recommended for a full recovery.

    The doctors of neck in Orlando will offer a number of solutions based on the your examination of result and will offer a complex treatment plan.
