Neck Pain & Back Pain Treatment, Orange County, CA

Neck Pain and Back Pain Treatment

Affordable Urgent Care for Neck Pain and Back Pain Treatment

Neck pain and back pain are becoming increasingly common due to remote and sedentary work-life. They may cause mild, moderate, or severe discomfort, depending on the underlying causes. While mild neck and back pain may go away on their own within a few days with over-the-counter medications and rest, moderate to severe pain may need medical attention. Otherwise, they can lead to complications such as nerve damage, loss of mobility, obesity, depression, and other ailments.

How to Know If Your Neck and Back Pain Requires a Medical Visit?

Both neck pain and back pain could be either acute or chronic. Acute pain occurs suddenly and subsides sooner (within six weeks), whereas chronic pain (occurs suddenly or gradually) persists for more than three months. Acute pain is more common than chronic pain.

Visit an urgent care provider if your acute neck/back pain causes symptoms such as:

  • Persistent mild-moderate back or neck pain
  • Difficulty walking or exercising
  • Pain that extends to your extremities
  • Less or no sensitivity in some areas of your body
  • Trouble writing or handcrafting
  • Constant pain after an injury
  • Weakness in the leg or arm (unable to stand or hold things)
  • Excessive leg heaviness or tiredness (after walking)

When to Go to an Emergency Department for Neck and Back Pain?

Visit an ER if your neck or back pain causes:

  • Loss of bladder and bowel control
  • Difficulty sleeping due to severe pain
  • Loss of control of one or more extremities
  • Chills, fever, appetite changes, or weight loss

Diagnosis and Treatment for Back Pain and Neck Pain

At FCCMG, we diagnose your neck pain and back pain with a physical examination and any necessary diagnostic procedures.

We will review your health history to study your overall health condition and examine your neck and back to assess the severity of your pain, your ability to sit, walk, and stand, and whether you have muscle cramps.

Then, we may perform the following procedures for a detailed diagnosis:

  • Blood Test – Examines whether an infection or other medical condition causes the pain.
  • X-Ray – Checks for arthritis or broken bones that cause persistent pain.

Depending on your symptoms and underlying causes, we may recommend any of the following treatment options to treat your neck and back pain:

  • Ice and Heat Therapy – Applying hot or cold packs on the area that hurts to reduce pain.
  • Pain Relievers – Topical or oral pain relievers to relieve neck and back pain.
  • Muscle Relaxants – Helps mild-moderate back/neck pain caused by muscle cramps.
  • Physical Therapy – Includes exercises and stretches to increase flexibility, improve posture, and strengthen your back and neck, preventing recurrent pain.

If your neck or back pain suggests a more serious condition or persists for more than two weeks despite rest and treatment, we may refer you to a recommended network of providers (specialists) for a complete examination and treatment.
