NECK PAIN

Listed below are the many causes of neck pain and their treatments.  We will direct you to other areas of our website to look at these many treatments our specialists have to offer for neck pain at Pain Care Boise. 

  • Herniated Discs and Degenerative Discs see Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI)
  • Spinal Stenosis 
  • Facet Pain
  • Failed Spine Surgery Syndrome see RFA or SCS
  • Muscle Pain TPI’s Paraspinous Muscles
  • Whiplash 


Whiplash deserves special attention for neck pain.  It will often cause immediate pain, resolve some and then return.  The pain from whiplash is felt to be due injury of the facet joints, often undetectable by MRI in the early phases. Later one will develop facet or degenerative disc problems.  Injury to the muscles may also occur with Whiplash injuries.  Our providers are specially trained to diagnose and do these advanced spine procedures, all with fluoroscopic(x-ray) or with ultrasound guidance. If you are not responding to treatment or have other concerning symptoms, we will get an MRI.  Prolonged numbness or weakness can become permanent, if not treated.  If we feel you have any red flags such as fever, severe numbness or weakness, severe incontinence of bladder/bowel we check MRI’s to rule out other rare causes of neck pain such as infection or tumor. For all these reasons, do not ignore your neck pain.  Come see our specialists at Pain Care Boise.
