Treating Your Head and Neck Pain

Head and neck pain are common complaints that can range from mild discomfort to debilitating agony, impacting daily life and productivity. Whether your pain is caused by tension, stress, poor posture, or underlying medical conditions, finding effective treatment strategies is essential for restoring comfort and well-being. Dr. Ali Nairizi at United Pain Urgent Care in Reno, NV, can explain how to treat head and neck pain and find relief from constant pain.

Finding Relief From Head and Neck Pain

Understanding the root cause of head and neck pain is crucial for determining the most appropriate treatment approach. Common causes may include:

  • Muscle tension
  • Poor posture
  • Stress
  • Migraines
  • Cervical spine issues
  • Whiplash
  • Arthritis
  • Nerve compression

Your doctor may recommend using heat and cold therapy to reduce inflammation and relax muscles that may be tight. You can apply heat to find soothing effects and an ice pack to reduce swelling and numb pain.

Your doctor in Reno, NV, will identify the root cause of your head and neck pain and determine the best form of treatment for you. This could include stretches and adjustments to help relieve tension that may build up. Your doctor will also treat the root cause to help relieve the symptoms associated with that issue.

Over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can provide temporary relief from mild to moderate head and neck pain. For more severe or chronic pain, your doctor may prescribe muscle relaxants, antidepressants, or other medications to manage symptoms.
