Neck / Upper Cervical

Neck pain ranks in the top 5 disorders in the United States, with 10-20% of people reporting incidents of neck pain. Among adults, 20% to 70% will experience neck pain that interferes with their daily activities during their lifetime.

Causes of neck pain include:

  • Auto accident (whiplash)
  • Cervical spondylosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated disc
  • Job
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Pinched nerve
  • Posture
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sports

The neck is the primary structure that protects the critical and life-sustaining functions of the brain stem. The neck responds very well to regenerative therapies. With other treatments it may feel better, but the body is very protective of the neck and will compensate by causing instability and dysfunction in other areas.

At OrthoCure Clinic, Dr. Hanson double assesses patients under ultrasound and fluoroscopy to understand what’s weak, loose, and injured, in order to treat with some of the most advanced cellular therapies available.
