Our specialty-trained, board-certified neck doctors at our Spine Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of neck injuries and conditions.
Acting as shock absorbers, the cervical discs in the neck bear significant weight and are supported by surrounding bones, ligaments, and muscles which help to support the head. Although the neck is strong and versatile, it is also prone to injury and pain. Treatments for neck pain can vary, from conservative pain management to minimally invasive surgery.
Patients who suffer from neck pain may visit their primary care physician's office, though a referral is often made to an orthopedic surgeon, who is a medical doctor trained to treat injuries and conditions of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the entire body, or a pain management specialist or physiatrist. Specialists who undergo additional specialized training for the neck through a fellowship are often referred to as a neck specialist.
If you're suffering from neck pain, it may be time to visit a neck doctor at Tri-County Orthopedics.
