Herniated Disc (Cervical)

Degenerated Cervical Disc Orthopaedic specialist diagnosis and treatment of a degenerated cervical disc © Viewmedica

A herniated cervical disc occurs when a disc in the neck region of the spine becomes ruptured or bursts as a result of damage to the surface. The soft material inside the disc comes out, hardens and can press on the nerves which run through the spinal column.

This can happen as part of the natural ageing process or because of trauma due to injury.

Pain is often felt as burning and may be accompanied by tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness in the neck, shoulders arms and hands.

Treatment such as rest (including keeping the neck still by wearing a specially designed soft collar), tablets or injections to reduce pain and inflammation, and physiotherapy may solve the problem. However, if the neck pain is not solved by non-invasive therapy, specialist surgeons at the Gelenk Klinik can work together to surgically remove the bulging portion of the disc. An Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion may be recommended.
