When a cervical disc herniates, it can impinge on nerves, causing pain, numbness, and tingling. A disc can be injured by a fall or accident, recurrent neck straining, lifting weights, or forceful twisting, and it can happen without any specific cause.
Your physician will evaluate your injury and examine your neck. They may also send you for an MRI or CT scan to get a better look.
At any point your pain becomes chronic, it is recommended to see a physical therapist as soon as possible. This will ensure no long-term or permanent damage occurs.
At Fluid Physio, your physical therapist will work with you to reduce pain and strengthen the muscles that support your neck and shoulders. We can help you reach the stars. Call us at 609-436-0366 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your appointment today.
