About Cervicalgia

What is it and what are my treatment options?

Cervicalgia Overview

Cervicalgia is neck pain that does not spread to the upper extremities. The key to effective cervicalgia treatment is identifying the cause. A Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates’ (CONA) spine specialist makes an accurate diagnosis and prescribes a symptom-reducing treatment plan.

Symptoms & Causes

Cervicalgia symptoms include:

  • Dull, persisting pain
  • Sharp, stabbing pain
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness

Common cervicalgia causes are:

  • Arthritis
  • Accidents
  • Overuse
  • Poor posture
  • Sports injuries
  • Weak neck muscles

Common Treatments:

Nonsurgical treatment options treat the overwhelming majority of cervicalgia cases. After a thorough evaluation, a CONA spine specialist may recommend:

  • A soft collar neck brace
  • Activity modification
  • Anti-inflammatory and pain medications
  • Heat
  • Physical therapy
  • Rest and ice

Surgery is not used to treat cervicalgia.

I am happy with this practice all my questions are answered within 24 hours. Dr. Hoenig is great, his bedside manner is wonderful, he is very thorough, and makes personal calls after surgery to check on patients. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!

This has been one of my most positive experiences at a Dr's office. I was treated with respect and love. They made my surgical procedure less stressful and very positive.

These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
