Meet with a Neck Pain Doctor in NY for Effective Pain Management Treatments

April 06, 2021

HARVARD TRAINED PAIN DOCTORS | VOTED #1 PAIN CENTER | PAIN TREATMENT SPECIALISTS

Getting outside during the first sunny days of spring is a gleeful exercise of cleaning up the yard from the past winter’s fury. Yes, it’s cleaning… but you’re finally outside in the fresh air without having 5 layers of clothes to keep you warm. You grab the pruning shears and begin taking down dead branches, when you turn your head quickly to investigate the rustling sound in a pile of nearby leaves. The resulting neck pain from that sudden movement stings immediately as the sneaky squirrel scampers off to your flower bed. When is it time to find a neck pain doctor in NY to help with your stiff and sore neck?

If you’re having neck pain that lasts longer than a couple of days, it’s worth meeting with a neck doctor to get rid of your pain in the neck. At Pain Treatment Specialists, we use minimally invasive pain management treatments like steroid injections and facet joint blocks for effective neck pain relief. Our pain management specialists provide an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for your neck pain at their state of the art pain clinic in Midtown Manhattan. When you book an appointment at Pain Treatment Specialists, you’ll find an easy patient experience from start to finish, beginning with your individual concierge who schedules your appointments and verifies your insurance information. Our entire team is dedicated to providing an outstanding patient experience where the end result is reducing your neck, shoulder, and joint pain.

Who is the Top Neck Pain Doctor in NY?

Before you meet with an orthopedic doctor or orthopedic surgeon for your neck pain, you should first meet with a board certified pain management specialist. There are several differences between these types of doctors, primarily with how they treat chronic pain. An orthopedic surgeon uses surgery as their main method of treating pain, while a pain management specialist uses more conservative treatments like steroid injections and nerve blocks for pain relief. At Pain Treatment Specialists, every member of our team is a pain management specialist, and has extensive training and experience with using minimally invasive neck pain treatments.

 Neck pain is a real pain in the neck! However, you can find effective relief from your muscle strains, pinched nerve, or degenerative disc disease with pain management specialists. At Pain Treatment Specialists, you’ll meet with a neck pain doctor in NY who uses minimally invasive treatments like steroid injections and facet block injections for effective neck pain relief.

Dr. George Hanna is double board certified in anesthesiology, pain medicine, and interventional pain management. He is a former Clinical Instructor at Harvard Medical School, and was later appointed as the school’s Director of Pain Innovations and Technology. As a regular contributor to medical textbooks and national conferences, his colleagues value his expert advice on pain medicine. As a top neck pain doctor in NY, his patients appreciate his kind and caring bedside manner and thorough explanations about neck pain.

Dr. Shane Volney taught pain medicine, palliative care, and anesthesiology as a Clinical Instructor at Harvard Medical School. He also served as Chairman of the Massachusetts General Hospital Pain and Sedation Committee, as well as Director of Resident Education in Pain Medicine. Dr. Volney brings this extensive background to Pain Treatment Specialists’ Madison Avenue pain clinic, where he uses this experience to find effective solutions for your neck pain.

Dr. Hanna and Dr. Volney are eager to meet with you in their Midtown Manhattan pain clinic and provide the correct diagnosis and treatment plan for your chronic neck pain issues.

Are Steroid Injections Effective for Neck Pain?

Overall, steroid injections are an excellent and minimally invasive treatment for neck pain. When you meet with the pain management specialists at Pain Treatment Specialists, you’ll have a thorough discussion about what neck pain treatment is right for you. There are a variety of different steroid injections used at our pain clinic depending whether you suffer from degenerative disc disease, a pinched nerve, muscle strains, or arthritis.

A cervical epidural steroid injection is effective for neck pain caused by spinal stenosis, a herniated disc, or sciatica. A steroid like cortisone is injected into the epidural space of your spine, and provides pain relief in your lower back, cervical spine, hips, and buttocks.

Trigger point injections involve using a corticosteroid to loosen deep knots within your connective tissues or muscles. These knots form from overuse, and are very painful. The corticosteroid injection, known as a trigger point injection, relaxes these knots and provides tremendous neck pain relief.

When you schedule an appointment at Pain Treatment Specialists, you’ll discuss which of these steroid injections is right for your treatment.

How Can I Describe My Pain in the Neck?

During your initial consultation with your neck pain doctor in NY, you’ll have a conversation about the type of neck pain you’re feeling. It is helpful to write down some of your symptoms and pain intensity for a few days before your appointment to help you articulate your neck pain. Do you feel more pain when you first wake up, or at the end of the day? Is the pain more noticeable when you turn your head side to side or when you’re looking down? What type of pain are you feeling: shooting, stabbing, aching, stiff, or throbbing? All of these details help you accurately describe your neck pain to your pain doctor.

Don’t let a muscle strain or stiff neck keep you from tidying up your yard this spring. Schedule an appointment at Pain Treatment Specialists, located near Bryant Park, and restore your neck’s range of motion while also getting rid of your chronic neck pain.
