Tri-State Pain Institute in Erie, Pa., offers expert treatment and relief for neck and shoulder pain.

We find that some people experience only neck pain, or only shoulder pain. Still others experience pain in both areas. This pain can be caused by a wide range of illnesses, injuries or conditions – from trauma and infection to poor posture and pinched nerves to osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis.

The Pain Institute’s goal is to use a conservative, but comprehensive plan to treat your neck and shoulder pain without developing long-term reliance on medications. To properly diagnose your problem, we may use X-rays, CT and MRI scanning or electromyography (EMG).

These diagnostic tests help our pain physicians develop a treatment approach that best addresses your specific condition and lifestyle. Your treatment may include one or more non-invasive and surgical options, including:

  • Therapeutic Injections
  • Medications
  • Physical Therapy
  • Surgical Procedures
