About Neck Pain
What is it and what are my treatment options?
Neck Pain Overview
Neck pain is a common type of pain that nearly everyone experiences at some point in their life. A spine specialist should see neck pain that lasts more than a few days. Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates’ (CONA) spine specialists make accurate diagnoses and prescribe neck pain-reducing treatment plans.
Symptoms & Causes
Neck pain symptoms include:
- Muscle spasms
- Muscle tightness
- Pain that is worse when the head is held still for prolonged periods
Common neck pain causes are:
- Poor posture
- Weak neck muscles
Nonsurgical treatment options treat neck pain. After a thorough evaluation, a CONA spine specialist may recommend:
- A brace or soft collar
- Activity modifications
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs)
- Pain medications
- Physical therapy
Surgery is not recommended for general neck pain. In some cases, a corticosteroid injection may be offered for fast-acting pain relief.

Read Their Success Stories
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.
