The imaging tests are conducted by the best doctors in India at CARE Hospitals. They’ll take a picture of the neck and back. These tests are classified into 3 categories-
X-Rays- These can indicate places in your neck and back where bone spurs or other degenerative changes may be pinching your nerves or spinal cord.
CT Scan- CT scans combine X-ray images from a variety of angles to provide comprehensive cross-sectional views of your neck and back’s interior anatomy.
MRI Scan- MRI creates comprehensive images of bones and soft tissues, including the spinal cord and nerves that branch from it, using radio waves and a strong magnetic field.
It's possible to have structural issues in your neck and back without experiencing symptoms. These can be evident in X-ray or MRI. To diagnose the origin of your discomfort, imaging studies should be used in conjunction with a thorough history and physical examination.
Electromyography- If the doctor feels that your neck and back pain is caused by a pinched nerve, an EMG scan is done. It entails placing small needles into a muscle through your skin and conducting tests to evaluate whether certain nerves are working properly. It is done by measuring the speed of nerve transmission.
Blood tests- Inflammatory or viral disorders that may be causing or contributing to your neck and back pain can be occasionally detected through blood tests.
Within two or three weeks, the most common types of mild to moderate neck and back discomfort can be cured via homecare. If your neck and back pain persists, our doctors at CARE Hospitals recommend the following-
Medications like painkillers and muscle relaxants are prescribed to cure neck and back pain.
Physical therapy- The physical therapist at CARE Hospitals can teach you proper posture, alignment, and neck-strengthening exercises, as well as how to use heat, cold, electrical stimulation, and other techniques to relieve discomfort and prevent it from returning.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)- Electrodes implanted near sensitive parts of the skin deliver tiny electrical impulses that may help ease pain.
Traction- Traction gradually stretches your neck and back using weights, pulleys, or an air bladder. Under the guidance of a medical specialist and a physical therapist in India at CARE Hospitals, this therapy may be able to relieve some neck and back discomfort. It works particularly for the pain caused by nerve root irritation.
Short term immobilisation- By relieving pressure on the tissues in your neck and back, a soft device that supports your body can help ease the pain. It can either be a neck collar or a lower back brace.
Why Choose CARE Hospitals for neck and back pains
As the back and neck are flexible and bear the weight of your upper body, it is susceptible to injuries and disorders that cause pain and limit movement. Doctors at CARE Hospitals diagnose the area properly. They perform a comprehensive approach to treat the area and give optimal solutions. With the world-class services and experience, the following are some of the reasons why you may have neck and back pain-
Strains in the muscles- When you overuse the muscle, it strains itself. This can be due to daily activities that involve lifting heavy weights or frequently leaning. Neck and back muscles can be strained by even small activities such as reading in bed or gritting your teeth.
Worn joints- Your neck and back joints, like the rest of your body's joints, deteriorate with age. Cartilages and other vertebrae bones can degrade. This process is called osteoarthritis. The obstruction of joint motion can be due to a bone spur. This causes pain.
Nerve compression- Nerves branching out from the spinal cord might be irritated by herniated discs or bone spurs in the vertebrae of your spine.
Injuries- injuries like whiplash, bent over rows or deadlifts can cause neck and back injuries. It puts pressure on the soft tissue resulting in pains.
Diseases- Neck and back pain can be caused by disorders including rheumatoid arthritis, meningitis, or cancer.
