Herniated Cervical Disc

What can a herniated cervical disc feel like?

Most Commonly practice members whom have an underlying herniated cervical disc tend to report deep aching pain in the base of the neck and arm pain that can range from pain in the upper arm to pain throughout the entire arm and hand with or without numbness or weakness.

How Does a Cervical disc herniation happen?

A Cervical disc herniation occur when injury or degenerative changes weaken the outer fibers of the cervical disc allowing the gel-like inner contents of the disc to squeeze out, sometimes coming into contact with sensative nerves causing symptoms of pain, numbness and even muscle weakness.

A disc herniation in the cervical spine is often seen following a traumatic injury, however it can occur without major trauma in some cases. the practice member has usually had a history of minor neck injuries.
