Why does my neck hurt?

When something in your neck or back doesn’t feel right, it’s your body’s way of signaling that there’s a problem with your spine’s complex system of bones, nerves, connective tissues and muscles.

Common causes of neck pain

When neck pain, stiffness, and instability keep you from being able to play your favorite sport, sleep soundly, spend time with family, or hang out with friends, it’s time to see a neck doctor.

At OrthoIndy, we treat a wide variety of spine-related injuries and conditions, including:

Treating your neck pain

Every patient is unique. After our spine team’s experts make an accurate diagnosis of what’s causing your neck pain, we’ll create an individualized treatment plan to help you heal and feel stronger.

Most of the time, getting rid of crippling neck pain doesn’t require surgery to help you start to feel better. At OrthoIndy, your needs are always at the center of our approach. Your doctor will work with you, taking your goals and lifestyle needs into consideration.

Then, we’ll develop a neck pain treatment plan designed to help you get normal back—whatever your normal looks like—using proven, non-surgical treatment options and non-invasive interventional procedures, including: 

  • Physical therapy
  • Medications
  • Braces
  • Injections
  • Nutrition guidance

If non-surgical treatments fail to provide neck pain relief, your spine specialist may recommend back surgery.

Spine surgery isn’t for everyone. In fact, 90% of patients don’t actually need neck surgery to get back to normal.

If you’ve seen a neck doctor elsewhere who recommends spine surgery, make sure your diagnosis is correct before saying yes or no. Make an appointment with an OrthoIndy spine specialist and find out what’s really going on back there.

“The difference was like night and day. The replacement disc that Dr. Dietz and [OrthoIndy physician assistant] Major Travis Welch put in my neck gave me a second lease on life.”
