  1. Understanding Herniated Cervical Disc: Diagnosis and Treatment Human backbone or spine is composed of a number of connected bones which are called as “vertebrae”, they surround the spinal cord and protects it from all kinds of damages. Nerves branch off the spinal cord and are spread across the body, communication between your body and brain. Your brain can send the message down your spinal cord so that muscles can move. Nerves also send information about body pain to your brain. Vertebrae are connected together by a disc and small joints which are called as facet joints. The disc is made of strong connective tissues that hold vertebras together, and work as the cushion or shock absorber between them. The joints of disc and facet allow for the movements of vertebrae so that you can bend and rotate your neck as well as back. The disc is made of a soft gel-like center “nucleus pulposus and tough outer layer “annulus fibrosus”. With ageing the disc center begins to lose water content, making the disc less effective and as the condition worsens the outer layer can also tear. It can lead to the displacement of disc’s center through a crack present in the outer layer to space which is occupied by nerves and spinal cord. The disc can press which allows for the

Herniated Disc Diagnosis It is not that every herniated disc causes symptoms; there are people who discover they have a herniated disc after an x-ray is conducted for some other reason. Otherwise, doctors usually advice physical and neurological exam, symptom evaluation and study of medical history. CT scan or MRI scan verifies the extent to which disc damage has been done. Treatments of Herniated Cervical Disc There are several cervical disc herniation treatments NY which include cold/ heat therapy, anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce swelling, muscle relaxant, physical therapy and cervical disc herniation surgery.
