If you have muscle strain and tension in your neck or back that lasts for several weeks, we encourage you to schedule an appointment to meet with Dr. Layne Hermansen to find relief. During your visit, our doctor can examine your neck to check for any tenderness, numbness and mobility. For treatment, Dr. Layne Hermansen can provide a trigger-point injection filled with cortisone to alleviate the tension and pain. Our doctor may also prescribe medication, request an MRI and refer you out to a physical therapist or surgeon if necessary. Some of the common causes for neck pain we see here at My Family Doctor are:

  • Auto-accidents causing severe whiplash
  • Poor posture and sleeping habits
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Pinched nerves
  • Diseases such as cancer and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Worn-out joints
  • Herniated disks
  • Muscle weakness

To help prevent neck and back pain, we recommend you avoid carrying heavy items, start sleeping in a better sleeping position, and adjust your work chair or desk so your monitor is at eye-level. If you have neck pain causing you to feel weak and spreads down to your arms and legs, please call us right away to schedule an appointment with our doctor to find pain relief.
