Neck Pain

Neck pain can result from many different causes — from injury to inflammatory disease — and will require different treatment for different conditions. Consistently rated among the best in the nation for Orthopedics and Rehabilitation Medicine by U.S.News & World Report, Jefferson's multidisciplinary team of orthopedists, neurosurgeons, rheumatologists, physiatrists (rehabilitation physicians), therapists and radiologists can diagnose and treat your neck pain.

If your neck pain is associated with osteoarthritis, our nationally recognized rheumatologists of the Arthritis Program utilize the latest methods for diagnosis and treatment, including enrollment in clinical trials of the most novel therapeutic agents for these diseases. We have state-of-the-art Infusion Centers at two locations, Center City Philadelphia and Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania.

Available Treatment

If your condition requires a surgical treatment, our orthopedic surgeons are considered pioneers in the development of minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), which helps to reduce the risk of infection, decrease pain, reduce blood loss and facilitate faster recovery.

Outpatient consultation and rehabilitation therapy services are available to patients of all age ranges, including neonate, pediatric, adult and geriatric. The rehabilitation therapists practice an interdisciplinary team approach, working with referring physicians, physiatrists (rehabilitation physicians), nurse practitioners and case managers to ensure comprehensive quality services are delivered.

For chronic pain management, our pain management-trained anesthesiologists, psychologists and nurses offer the latest advances in both technological and psychological treatments. Our specialists provide a comprehensive, pain-focused evaluation of patients with chronic pain and provide leading-edge treatments such as nerve root block therapy, long-term intraspinal infusions and radiofrequency neurotomy.

As a complement to more traditional therapies, an integrative approach can be an additional solution for unresolved pain complaints and to improve strength and functional mobility. Rated a Top Hospital for Alternative Medicine by Philadelphia magazine, the Marcus Institute of Integrative Health team offers many unique therapies such as homeopathic bee venom injections, as well as a variety of manual medicine modalities.

There is also growing evidence for the effectiveness of acupuncture and other related modalities for a wide range of ailments, including neck pain. The acupuncturists and Oriental medicine practitioners of the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Program can make a big difference.
