Neck Pain Relief an Alternative Approach

Alternative therapy is a term which describe any treatment or therapy which is used instead of medicinal therapy. When alternative therapy and medicinal therapy are used in combination then it is known as complementary medicine. There are variety of disciplines in in alternative therapy i.e. acupuncture, yoga, hypnosis, aromatherapy, herbal remedies, massage, guided imagery, chiropractic treatment, bio feedback, relaxation and many more. Evidence have been collected regarding success of above mentioned alternative methods for relief. Research is still going on to compare both conventional and alternative therapies. Here is the detail of above mentioned alternative therapies:

Mind-Body Therapies


Mind body therapies involve therapy of mind which in turn relaxes body functions and symptoms. Various techniques are used to relax mind of people. Relaxation techniques are used abundantly. Meditation and guided imagery are also used to relief chronic pain. Patient’s mind is relaxed and do not response much to pain sensations. Biofeedback and hypnosis are also of great help in relieving pain.


Acupuncture


Use of acupuncture is increasing day by day specially for relieving neck pain. It is considered best treatment for neck pain. It was believed that disease occur due energy imbalance in body. Disposable stainless stain small needles are used in acupuncture technique. These needles are used to stimulate body’s major 14 energy carrying channels. These needles will overcome disease by stimulating these energy channels. This is the basic principle of acupuncture on which it works. Likewise acupuncture stimulate release of chemical named endorphins to block pain sensation. There are many acu points which lies near nerves, so when they are stimulated people feel fullness of muscles. These muscles in turn stimulate endorphins which block pain sensations. Acupuncture is not only useful in treating neck pain but many other conditions can be treated with it.

Massage


Massage is another alternative therapy with positive result. Massage therapy is considered most effective for shorter period of time. Massage reduce muscle stress and relief pain. When massage is performed, blood circulation of neck increases which ultimately reduce tension in muscles and reduce pain. Massage can also eliminate those substances which are responsible for neck pain. Massage therapy is in use worldwide to relief chronic pain in neck region and back.

Yoga


Yoga include some exercises of neck region which are guided by a physiotherapist. These exercises should be performed under supervision of trained professional. Some exercises are specified only for neck region to relief pain. As exercises increases blood circulation and ultimately reduce pain sensation. Yoga if continued for some months can completely eliminate neck pain.

Nutritional Supplements


Nutritional supplements do not provide much benefit in relieving neck pain. But some evidences have been collected which prove that nutritional supplements work in reducing pain.

Tai-Chi Practice And Posture


Tai chi is a collection of slow moving, low impact exercises. It is perfect for those who have pain in any region of their body specially neck region and find it hard to perform routine activities. Tai chi are not normal exercises but it is associated with fluid movement. So an instructor is required.

Dorsalgia Types

Dorsalgia is a term which define back pain or spine pain. It involves vertebral column. Vertebral column have different sections which are associated with different regions of body. Vertebral column consist of many discs of different regions i.e. cervical region, lumbar region, thoracic region and sacral region. Dorsalgia is divided into many types according to region involved, location of pain and injury. Types of Dorsalgia are as follows.

Cervical Dorsalgia


Cervical region is the upper most part of vertebral column. This region is attached to neck and pain originates from neck region in this type of Dorsalgia. Basic etiology behind cervical Dorsalgia may be an injury in cervical discs or any degenerative disease of the cervical spine. If nerves get involved in injury or degeneration of cervical spine then intense pain may radiate downward to shoulder and then arms and hands. Cervicalgia is another term to define cervical Dorsalgia.

Dorsalgia Types

Cervicothoracic Dorsalgia


This type of Dorsalgia involves two regions of vertebral column i.e. cervical and thoracic region. Injury or disc dislocation may occur in the mid-section of both regions.

Thoracic Dorsalgia


In this type of Dorsalgia, only thoracic region of vertebral column is involved. It is not a common site for Dorsalgia because it lies just below the cervical region and least used spinal structure in the body. Or we can say that thoracic Dorsalgia is a rare type.

Thoracolumbar Dorsalgia


This type of Dorsalgia involve two regions of vertebral column i.e. thoracic spine and lumbar region of vertebral column. Vertebral discs of both regions are effected in injury. Pain may occur in upper and lower region of vertebral column in this type of Dorsalgia.

Lumbar Dorsalgia


Lumbar Dorsalgia involves only lumbar region of vertebral column. Lower back pain is associated with it. It is the mostly used section of vertebral column and is more prone to injuries and muscle tearing. It is most common type of Dorsalgia.

Lumbosacral Dorsalgia


Lumbosacral Dorsalgia is another type of Dorsalgia which involve two regions of vertebral column i.e. lumbar spine and sacral region. Sacral region is the lower most region of vertebral column.

These are the types of Dorsalgia which should be completely understood to treat them perfectly. Each type of Dorsalgia have its specific treatment option. According to research lower regions of vertebral column are more prone to injuries and accidents. People with Dorsalgia may experience different categories of pain.

Pain may stick to only one part of vertebral column or travel through body to other parts for example in case of cervical Dorsalgia, pain may originate from neck region and diffuse downwards to shoulder and then gradually effect arms and hands. Pain have other categories like mild to moderate pain, intense pain etc. pain in Dorsalgia may occur continuously or with minor episodes. In Dorsalgia both muscular and joint pain is involved. So it should be checked before starting treatment that either muscle or joint is associated with Dorsalgia. If joint is involved then surgical treatment is recommended while in muscle pain medications are preferred.

Dorsalgia Treatment Options

Dorsalgia means back pain or spine pain. As there are different sections of spine, so treatment will be selected according to the section causing pain. Treatment type is also selected on the basis of etiology. Accurate diagnosis is considered 1st step to choose treatment option. Dorsalgia have following types according to section of spine causing pain:


  • Cervical Dorsalgia
  • Cervicothoracic Dorsalgia
  • Thoracic Dorsalgia
  • Thoracolumbar Dorsalgia
  • Lumbar Dorsalgia
  • Lumbosacral Dorsalgia


There are two main treatment options of Dorsalgia i.e. therapeutic treatment and surgical treatment.

Dorsalgia Treatment Options



Dorsalgia Treatment Options


Dorsalgia Therapeutic Treatment



It mainly involves medications. Patient will 1st try to cure it on its own with the help of over the counter drugs (OTC Drugs) and if these over the counter drugs do not work then patient seek physician guidance. Over the counter drugs involve:

Pain Relievers: category of pain relievers involve NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like ibuprofen with brand name Advil, Motrin, IB etc. or naproxen sodium with brand name Aleve. These medicines are preferred to treat acute back pain. Physician instructions are strictly required regarding dosage of ibuprofen and naproxen sodium because their over dosage can cause serious side effects. If patient do not get relief with these over the counter drugs then he should consult doctor for prescription NSAIDS.


Muscle relaxants: muscle relaxant drugs are preferred for mild to moderate pain. Muscle relaxants cause dizziness and induce sleep.

Topical Pain Relievers: topical pain relievers are commonly used now a days for back pain because of easy application. It involves creams, ointments and sprays.

Narcotics: narcotics are not available over the counter because their administration need close supervision. Codeine and hydrocodone are common examples.

Anti-Depressants: anti-depressants drugs are used for chronic back pain. Low dose is required to treat pain because increased dose can cause dependence. Common examples are tricyclic anti-depressants i.e. amitriptyline.

Injections: injections are the least option in therapeutic treatment. When other forms of drugs get failed then doctor prefer injection of an anti-inflammatory drug e.g. cortisone.

Dorsalgia Surgical Treatment


Surgical treatment require accurate diagnosis. Selection of type of surgical treatment depends upon etiology. Main types of surgical treatment are:

Artificial Disc Replacement: Disc replacement is performed when diagnosis shows dislocation of disc or damaged disc. It was rare but now a days a lot of people with Dorsalgia are preferring artificial disc replacement. In this procedure damaged disc is replaced by an artificial one.

Micro Discectomy: Micro discectomy is performed when disc herniation is diagnosed. In this procedure, herniated disc is removed completely.

Vertebroplasty: Vertebroplasty is performed when osteoporosis is diagnosed as etiology. This procedure will only slow down osteoporosis instead of total cure.

Electrical Stimulation: In this procedure, an electrical device is placed on nerves taking signals to brain. This device will block those pain signals and relief pain.

Spinal Fusion: This procedure is performed in different conditions of Dorsalgia like degenerative disc disease and spondylolisthesis. In this procedure, the disc causing pain is completely removed and its adjacent upper and lower discs are fused together to relief pain completely.

Dorsalgia Unspecified - Definition, Symptoms, Causes, Treatment

Dorsalgia is defined as a collection of disorders related to spine. These nerves and joints are attached to spine. There is classification of pain that it may be constant or intermittent, may confined to one part or travel through body. Pain may impart stinging effect or burning sensation. If pain is in cervical bone then it may spread to extremities and cause numbness. Dorsalgia is the combination of two words i.e. dorsal means back or spine and algia means pain.


As the name shows it is associated with back pain, backache or spine pain. Basically Dorsalgia is collection of rheumatic diseases. There are many reason behind back pain like osteoporosis, kyphosis, lordosis, sciatica, lumbago, sprains, disc slip or injury in vertebral column. ICD(abbreviated as international classification system) is used by medical practitioner or health care providers to assign codes to different diseases. As Dorsalgia is collection of disorders related to spine that’s why it has many codes associated with each type of pain. For example M54.82 is the code of Dorsalgia in cervical region and M54.83 is code of Dorsalgia in cervicothoracic region.

Dorsalgia Unspecified - Definition, Symptoms, Causes, Treatment

Dorsalgia Unspecified Symptoms


As discussed earlier, Dorsalgia is associated with spine pain so its main symptom is pain. But type of pain varies person to person. Symptoms also vary according to underlying cause. Some common type of pain reported are stinging pain sensation, burning pain, and intense pain which become unbearable for patient. Other symptoms include

  • Patient may feel difficulty in changing posture.
  • Patient is not able to bend down easily and then get up straight.
  • He cannot even walk properly with pain.
  • If there is a pinched nerve, then patient will face intense pain.
  • Patient find it difficult to walk without support.


Dorsalgia Unspecified Causes


There may be many causes behind lower back pain and leg pain. In adults, below 50 years of age can have disc herniation and degenerative disc diseases as main cause behind backache. Osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis are common causes reported in people with above 50 years of age. Some scientists after vast research state that about 90 percent of back pain is caused by tension syndrome. Tension syndrome is associated with pain which occur due to different stress and emotional disturbance. Some rheumatic diseases can also be main cause behind back pain like sciatica and lumbago.

Dorsalgia Unspecified Treatment


There are a no. of treatment options regarding Dorsalgia according to type of pain and leading cause behind it. Accurate diagnosis is required to pick best treatment option. There are two main treatment options 1st is therapeutic treatment and 2nd one is surgical treatment. Therapeutic treatment involve medicines like muscle relaxant and pain relievers etc. Surgical treatment involve some sub categories which are:


  • Replacement of disc with artificial one.
  • Discectomy or micro discectomy.
  • Quifoplastia or vertebroplasty
  • Simulation of spinal column.
  • Spinal fusion.


The selection of type of treatment depends upon condition of patient and underlying cause behind it.

What is Dorsalgia - Meaning, Definition, Unspecified, Icd10, Treatment
