Neck Doctor

As the premier orthopedic and neurosurgical providers for Vancouver, Portland, Lake Oswego, and the surrounding areas for over 50 years, Rebound Orthopedics & Neurosurgery offers exceptional neck care from our fellowship-trained and board-certified/eligible neck doctors so you can rebound.  

The neck, otherwise known as the cervical spine, supports the head and allows it to twist and turn. However, this can make the neck vulnerable to damage and pain. Neck pain is something most people will experience in their lifetime, and it should be assessed by a specialist, such as an orthopedic spine surgeon or neurosurgeon. These doctors have a deep understanding of the intricacies of the neck, accurately diagnosing patients and providing an individualized treatment plan to help eliminate pain.

Committed to delivering specialized orthopedic and neurological care, we have developed our Online Guide to Back, Neck, and Spine Care.

Learn all about spine care management and the available treatments, prevent injuries and degenerative conditions, and get quick answers to frequently asked questions. To access our guide, use the button below.

When Is It Time to Consult a Neck Doctor?

Being able to communicate any of the symptoms you are experiencing will allow you to provide helpful information to your neck doctor. It can reveal to your doctor how severe your neck injury is or what neck condition you have. It is important to schedule an appointment with a neck doctor near you if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Clicking or grinding sensations when moving your head side to side
  • Inability to nod or shake the head due to pain
  • Kinked or twisted neck
  • Muscle spasms or weakness
  • Neck pain that travels down to the shoulders and the arms
  • Persistent headaches
  • Swelling or bruising
  • Stiffness that results in a limited range of motion
  • Tingling or numbness in the arms or hands

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it could mean that you have one of the following injuries, which can be treated by our neck specialists:

  • Alignment issues
  • Arthritis
  • Compressed or pinched nerves
  • Cervical kyphosis
  • Fractured vertebra
  • Neck sprain or strain
  • Ruptured or herniated disc
