Cervical Herniated Disc

A cervical herniated disc is a type of cervical radiculopathy caused when the center of a degenerative disc in the cervical spine is displaced, leading to irritation and inflammation of the nerve emanating from the adjacent vertebrae.

Less common than lumbar disc herniations, a bulging or leaking disc between the cervical vertebrae can cause painful symptoms in the head and neck that may also extend into the shoulders and arms. Anti-inflammatory injections and other pain management solutions may be helpful in relieving this pain.
