Why a stiff neck could leave you no good

Up till now in a wink, everyday life became almost futile to manage for the 59 year old Lawyer from Illinoise, in United States of America

Her neck became so stiff and agonizing that she could not turn her head, which afflicted her ability to even drive safely.

“ I had to park at distant from other cars as I had so much difficulty getting in and out of the car.”, said Janice, 59 years old

She strived getting in and out of her bed and says she came to dismay going to sleep at night because of the agonizing she had to suffer

The acceleration and severity of her neck pain eventually compelled Janice to take an early withdrawal from her job.

“The final straw was when I wasn’t even able to bend to put my shoe lace and my husband had to do it for me. I decided to go to see the doctor as something wasn’t in my favor”

When she sought help, Janice was diagnosed with severe neck muscle sprains, a neck stiffening condition that causes pain and tenderness in the tendons and ligaments around the neck and shoulder. Also, there are several other causes that lead to soaring neck conditions including,

  • Cervical spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated disc
  • Whiplash
  • Degenerative disc disease

Janice says: “ I was lucky that I had a physician Dr. Zaki Anwer, MD,  who understands how debilitating a neck pain could be, and Is well versed in treating neck pain,  but I have heard many stories of people who have been misdiagnosed or when they finally being diagnosed the condition worsens

“I had a bit of a catastrophe as I became hopeless to get better.” Janice then came to know the Pain Management Institute, with its potential support, advice and cooperation Janice was able to manage her everyday life better than ever

Many patients suffering from severe neck pain, initiate taking steroids too quickly without proper consultation and their body requirements and end up with the hallmarks reversed, Says Dr. Zaki Anwer, MD. In the present days newer and highly potential neck pain treatments have been introduced with lesser side effects which may include, Activity modification, Ice and/or heat therapy, Over-the-counter pain medication, Physical therapy, Manual manipulation, Massage therapy, Acupuncture, Prescription medications
