Acute and Chronic Neck Pains
Pain in the neck and other areas in the body often breaks down into two separates categories; acute or chronic. Acute neck pain happens suddenly and generally lasts only three months. While chronic neck pain lasts for much longer and occurs from severe damage to the facet joints and discs, muscles, or ligaments in the neck. These categories help us determine how to proceed with your personalized treatment plan and how we can get you feeling relief. We also take into consideration how you injured your neck.
