Finding Back Pain Relief in Houston and The Woodlands
If you experience neck pain, you are not alone. Whether you have bad posture or if you’ve recently been in a car accident, it is a very common complaint involving the cervical vertebrae at the top of the spine and just below the base of the skull. Although it is a very common type of pain to have, it can be quite serious; the level of pain can be enough to disrupt your daily life, which can be annoying if you have quite a lot to do from day to day. Don’t let this discomfort affect you and cause significant changes; count on Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Center to diminish your pain.

Neck Pain Symptoms
Neck pain can come on slow or can arise quickly from injury. You might start to feel a dull, consistent pain in your neck. If you begin to favor the aching side by moving slowly or tilting in a certain direction, you might be experiencing neck pain. Mild to intense headaches can possibly arise and problems with vision have been reported. Some symptoms associated with neck pain include:
- Throbbing and pulsing pain spasms
- A sensation of weight rolling within the skull
- Piercing pain strikes behind the eye sockets
- Stiffness and inability to turn one’s head
- Radiating pain down the back
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, don’t wait too long to seek help. Here at Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Center, we are dedicated to providing you with maximum comfort and alleviation from pain, and we can do it at the first sign of trouble.
