Best Treatment Herniated Disc In Neck

A herniated disc is most common in the neck – within the cervical spine – which is comprised of the first 7 vertebrae beginning at the base of the skull. When one of these discs become damaged – an abnormal bulge or rupture occurs – resulting a slipped or herniated disc. A herniated neck disc requires extensive treatment and can take the patient through a long recovery process.

Diagnosis of Herniated Neck Disc

A cervical hernitated disc herniated disc is diagnosed when:

  • The inner core of a neck disc herniates or leaks
  • The herniated or leaking disc presses on an adjacent nerve root

Herniated discs:

  • Commonly occur in people 30 to 50 years of age
  • Develop as a result of trauma or injury to the neck
  • A bulging disc pinches or presses on a cervical nerve
  • Symptoms begin without warning – spontaneously
  • Result in a pinching pain that radiates along the arm
  • Cause pain accompanied by numbness and tingling down the arm into the fingertips
  • Commonly cause arm muscle weakness

Best Treatment for a Herniated Neck Disc

At Spine and Sports Medicine , doctors diagnose a herniated disc by identifying a variety of symptoms in the patient’s neck, shoulder, arm, hand, and fingers.
