Cervical disc protrusion
Disc protrusions can occur anywhere in the spine and are common in the neck (cervical spine). They are also common in the low back (lumbar spine). disc protrusions are a type of disc herniation.
Neck pain and discomfort can occur with a neck disc protrusion. If the protrusion pushes into a spinal nerve this can be felt as sharp, shooting pain along the course of the nerve (into the shoulders and arms). Neurological symptoms such as numbness, tingling and muscle weakness are possible.
Chiropractic and physiotherapy treatments are useful in the management of cervical (neck) disc protrusions. Contact your chiropractor, physiotherapist o medical doctor for more information. Contact our Balmain chiro today.
