Treatment for neck pain would include several different types. It really depends on the reasons for the neck pain. The most common neck pain injuries are strains and sprains, such as whiplash injuries from a car accident. It’s not uncommon for those types of treatments for those types of injuries to include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medicine, pain medication, traction systems, and the such. There are other pathologies that could be causing the neck pain and those need to be studied and evaluated by the orthopedic surgeon, with certain studies, including MRI studies or cat scans to make sure there’s no underlying problem that is, or that will be a permanent situation.
