Maybe you were recently involved in a fender bender and suffered a neck injury, or perhaps you simply slept wrong and woke up with a stiff neck. Even if there’s no known cause, severe pain in your neck should certainly not be ignored. At the first sign of a neck injury, you should contact Premier Bone & Joint Centers. Our reputable doctors and physicians have long been trusted by residents of Rock Springs, as well as surrounding parts of Wyoming.
We’ll Provide an Accurate Diagnosis
Just about everyone has tweaked their neck at one point, and it’s never a pleasant experience. And because your neck supports the weight of your head, it’s important not to overlook any pain or discomfort. Whatever you’re experiencing, our board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic doctors can diagnose the cause of your pain or injury. Some of the most common causes include:
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Nerve compression
- Worn joints
- Injury from impact or accidents, like auto collisions or contact sports
- Diseases like rheumatoid arthritis
Treating Your Neck Pain
Once our physicians diagnose the cause of your neck pain, we can formulate the right treatment plan. We always try to start with conservative treatment options like physical therapy, immobilization, and pain medications, but if we find that surgical intervention is necessary, you’ll be in the best hands with our team of orthopedic surgeons. Not only do they constantly stay up to date with the most advanced surgical techniques, but many of them also belong the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Most importantly, the physicians of Premier Bone & Joint Centers understand that severe neck pain can significantly impact your quality of life, so we’ll get you on the road to recovery as fast and as safely as possible. Take the first step towards addressing your neck injury by scheduling an appointment at our Rock Springs clinic or other satellite branches throughout Wyoming.
