The Severity and Frequency of Neck Pain


Neck pain associated with neck muscle strain from poor posture and neck osteoarthritis can lead to certain debilitating conditions and limit your life.

Non-specific neck pain affects about two-thirds of people at some stage, most especially during middle age. The frequency of neck pain can occur daily and last for years without professional treatment.

It may be time to see Dr. McMonigle, a medical PC doctor-specialist who can locate the cause of your pain and develop an effective pain relief plan if you are suffering acute or chronic neck pain in Elwood, NY.

Many Elwood patients have non-specific or simple pain with symptoms that have a postural or mechanical basis:

  • Neck strain
  • Poor posture
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Sports injuries or occupational activities
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Whiplash injury with no bone injury or neurological deficit
  • Mechanical conditions may include cervical spondylosis

Call or visit us online to schedule a consultation. We also treat chronic neck pain that may contribute to unrelenting headaches.

Neck Pain Causes Common to Elwood Residents


A healthy neck supports the weight of your head and maintains flexibility, but it is vulnerable to conditions and injuries that cause pain and restrict motion.

When ligaments, muscles, tendons, discs, joints, and bones cannot provide normal motion and flexibility, you may experience limited or painful motion when moving your head, neck, arms, and shoulders.

These are examples of neck pain causes experienced by Elwood residents:

  • Poor posture
  • Muscle strain from unsafe lifting techniques
  • Sports injuries or whiplash
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Nerve compression
  • Falls
  • Cervical spondylosis
  • Diseases – rheumatoid arthritis, meningitis, cancer
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Muscle spasms

Call our office to schedule a consultation if you are experiencing severe pain, a discomfort that persists for several days without relief, that spreads down your arms or legs, or is accompanied by headaches, numbness, weakness, or tingling.

Dr. McMonigle can establish neck pain causes and offer an effective treatment form.
