What are the causes of neck pain?
The cause of neck pain is usually joint dysfunction leading to inflammation, resulting in neck pain. Neck joint dysfunction is commonly caused by acute trauma (accident, fall, lifting injury, bumping your head on something, etc.), accumulative trauma (poor posture on the computer or phone), an old injury that did not heal correctly, muscle imbalance, and/or poor posture. The doctors at Golden State Medical Center are experts at alleviating neck pain, correcting joint dysfunction, and the causes of your joint dysfunction, so your neck pain does not return.

Neck pain sufferers can become dependent on taking pain relief medications to get through their daily lives. These pain medications have many side-effects that can create more health problems. Regenerative medicine is natural and appears to be a more effective approach to not only pain relief, but to reduce inflammation, and regenerate healthier tissues without the dangerous side-effects of pain medications. If you are tired of depending on prescription drugs and neck pain prevents you from fully enjoying your life, regenerative medicine treatments may be the right solution for you.
