The team at the Illinois Neurological Institute Spine Institute provide
specialized care to those suffering from neck pain and other spinal conditions.
Each treatment plan is customized to the individual patient’s needs.
Often, treatment for neck pain at our Spine Institute begins with conservative
measures such as medications to relieve pain and muscle spasms. Some patients
may benefit from a cervical collar or cervical pillow. Additionally, working
with a physical therapist at our Spine Institute near Peoria can help
prevent a recurrence of the neck injury.
Sometimes, patients with neck pain may be advised to consider neurosurgery.
There are several surgical techniques that may be used, depending on your
unique situation. For example, a discectomy may be appropriate for patients
with cervical disc herniation. A discectomy procedure is typically combined
with an anterior spine fusion. However, if your neck pain is caused by
spinal stenosis, you might consider having a laminectomy.
