Cervical Disc Bulge
A cervical herniated disc can be an extremely painful cause of neck pain and arm pain, caused by irritation, inflammation and pressure on nerve roots. Symptoms may vary from moderate pain in the neck to widespread numbness and weakness in the arms or legs, which requires urgent medical attention. A chiropractor will examine your spine and perform orthopaedic tests to determine if a disc bulge is the cause of your pain. With the appropriate chiropractic treatment, recommendations and specific exercises, a chiropractor can help to relieve your symptoms.
Note: Although a disc herniation is often painful, research has also found it is common for people to have disc bulges in their spine, with no associated pain or symptoms.
