Relief for Arthritis of the Neck
If you are seeking relief for the pain and other symptoms associated with Arthritis of the neck, you can count on the caring team from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. Our treatments are focused around alleviating the symptoms associated with the joint stiffness and/or nerve compression that results from Cervical Spondylosis. In some cases, the discomfort from spinal degeneration can be managed using conservative treatments, such as therapeutic exercises, massage, physical therapy, over-the-counter or prescription pain medications, hot/cold therapy or epidural steroid injections. If you have been diagnosed with Cervical Spondylosis, we will work collaboratively with your referring physician, Chiropractor or other ancillary services such as physical therapy to help manage your condition.
