Neck Pain Clinics?

I am looking for a recommendation for a good Neck Pain clinic (preferably in Canada) but can also consider USA clinics. Any that are recommended as they specialize in neck problems?

From another member's information, it appears that an upright MRI may also be advantageous in my situation, as the recumbent MRI has not shown anything too much wrong. I am not aware at this time of any place in Canada which offers this, even though it may be worthwhile having done. Perhaps some of the clinics would offer this service?



  • There are about 100 sites in the US that offer positional MRIs, so you can see it is not all that common yet. You met check in the larger Canadian cities. I don't know where you're located...most of the big cities in the US have them. I went to Minneapolis for mine and there were two different places that had them.

    I doubt if you will find a pain clinic that is just for necks. As far as the interventional pain management physicians are concerned, there isn't much difference caring for cervical, thoracic or lumbar issues. Most PMs do not even specialize anyway. They may have more orthopedic patients, but I imagine they also have a variety of patients with other issues, too.

    If you go to a Spine Clinic, then the PM would only deal with orthopedic patients...but I've never heard of one that was just for cervical issues.
