Herniated Disc and Degeneration
Intervertebral discs in between the bones of the vertebrae help to cushion the bones and allow for smooth and painless movement. Symptoms can arise when part of the disc material begins to protrude, known as a disc herniation. Disc degeneration can cause similar symptoms. This condition can cause neck pain that radiates into the shoulder, arm, or hand. Associated symptoms include weakness or numbness in the shoulder, arm or hand. Treatment for a herniated or degenerated disc includes immobilization of the neck, anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, or surgery. The surgical treatment is based on the anatomy, goals, and symptoms of each patient.
