A cervical herniated disc is diagnosed when the inner material of a disc (called the nucleus pulposus) in the neck herniates, or leaks out of the disc fibers (annular fibers), and presses on an adjacent nerve root.
It usually develops in the 30-to-50-year-old age group, although can occur at any age due to traumatic injury.
The symptoms associated with a cervical herniated disc often start spontaneously, not necessarily around the time of the injury.
A cervical herniated disc can cause a variety of symptoms in the neck, arm, hand, and fingers, as well as parts of the shoulder.
The pain pattern and neurological impairment is commonly determined by the location of the herniated disc.
Our procedure for treating this condition includes:
- Gentle chiropractic spinal correction to restore the spinal structure
- Cervical disc decompression therapy to restore the disc herniation
- PEMF therapy for pain, inflammation and tissue regeneration
- MLS laser therapy for pain, inflammation and tissue regeneration
