Relieving Discomfort Where Neck Meets Spine

At Premier Healthcare Center Corporation, we offer a range of non-surgical treatments for common neck and back injuries. The following are just a few of the conditions we treat and the treatments we offer:

  • Herniated Discs: This is a condition that occurs when the soft inner material of a spinal disc pushes out through a crack in the outer shell. We may recommend nerve block injections or trigger point injections to improve mobility.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease: This refers to the gradual breakdown of spinal discs due to age or wear and tear. Neuromuscular re-education can help to strengthen the muscles around the affected area, improving mobility.
  • Sciatica: This condition occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down the legs, is compressed or inflamed. Interferential electro-therapy uses low-level electrical pulses to stimulate the affected area, reducing inflammation.
  • Whiplash: This is a common injury caused by sudden forward and backward movement of the neck, such as in car accidents. Cryotherapy, which involves the application of cold compresses, can help to reduce inflammation in the affected area.
  • Strains and Sprains: These injuries occur when muscles or ligaments in the neck or back are overstretched or torn. Trigger point injections can help to relieve discomfort and increase mobility in the affected area.

At Premier Healthcare Center Corporation, our team of healthcare professionals works closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets their individual needs and helps them achieve lasting relief from neck and back injuries.

Upper back and neck stiffness after sleeping can occur due to several reasons. One common cause is poor sleeping posture, such as sleeping on your stomach or with an unsupportive pillow. This can strain the muscles and joints in the upper back and neck area. Other possible reasons include underlying medical conditions like degenerative disc disease, muscle tension, or even stress.

It is advisable to maintain a proper sleeping position, use supportive pillows, and if the discomfort persists, consult a healthcare professional for a thorough evaluation.

Some common exercises for the neck include neck stretches, neck tilts, chin tucks, and shoulder rolls. These exercises can help alleviate discomfort and improve neck mobility.
