What is a Cervical Herniated Disc?:

What is a Cervical Herniated Disc? http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 When a disc in the cervical spine ruptures, soft material from inside the disc can form a bulge that presses painfully against the spinal cord and nerve roots.

Anatomy:

Anatomy http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 Spinal discs are tough, elastic pads that act as shock absorbers for the vertebrae. They cushion the vertebrae and allow the spine to twist and bend. Each disc has a tough, fibrous outer wall and soft inner nucleus. Jacksonville Pain Physician

Causes:

Causes http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 A herniated disc can be caused by the normal wear and tear of aging, or it can be caused by traumatic injury to the spine. Typically, small cracks or tears form in the disc’s outer wall, resulting in a weak spot.

Herniation:

Herniation http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 A herniation occurs when the disc’s nucleus pushes through the weakened disc wall. The bulging disc material can push into the spinal canal, pressing against the spinal cord and nerve roots.

Symptoms:

Symptoms http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 A herniated cervical disc can cause painful burning, tingling or numbing sensations in the neck, shoulders, arms and hands. It may also cause muscle weakness. Jacksonville Pain Doctors

Treatment:

Treatment http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 Treatment options for a herniated cervical disc may include rest, immobilization of the neck with a soft collar, anti-inflammatory medications, pain medications, injections and physical therapy. If those options are not successful, surgery may be needed to remove the bulging portion of the disc.
