Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Hello, I am experiencing some neck problems, and I have a PDF containing information and questions. Can I send it to you? Also, I am currently taking Celebrex and fish oil as part of my medication regimen. Please help.

Thank you.

Answered by Dr. Craig Orvieto


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your query and can understand your concern.

Regarding your inquiries, I suggest you the following:

  1. It is important to understand that since the damage did not develop overnight, the relief would not come overnight either. I will provide some alternative treatment options below that may expedite recovery.

  2. Stem cell and light therapy are still areas of ongoing research, and while they hold promise, I cannot provide a definitive answer regarding their effectiveness.

  3. Unfortunately, achieving a full return to 100 percent functionality may not be feasible. During a recent conference I attended, we discussed the realities of pain and function improvement in cases of chronic arthritis and patient expectations. While our goal is to help patients as much as possible, many of my patients find significant satisfaction with a 40 to 60 percent improvement in functionality.

I hope this helps.

Revert in case of other queries.

Thank you.

Probable diagnosis

The probable diagnosis is severe cervical degenerative disease/arthritis with spinal stenosis and neuropathy.

Treatment plan

I suggest a combination of sessions of osteopathic manipulative therapy, acupuncture, and NSAIDs. Due to the severity of the diagnosis, these treatment options might fail, and you would need to see a spinal surgeon or neurosurgeon. Kindly, consult your doctor and take the medicines.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
