Is Your Neck Or Back Pain caused By A Herniated Disc?

Is Your Neck Or Back Pain Caused By A HERNIATED DISC?

(continued)

A herniated disc in the neck can be just as painful as a herniated disc in the back. Arm pain from a cervical herniated disc is one of the more common cervical spine conditions treated by spine specialists. A cervical herniated disc usually develops in the 30 - 50 year old age group. Although a cervical herniated disc may originate from some sort of trauma or injury to the cervical spine, the symptoms, including arm pain, commonly start from poor posture or muscle strains.

At Synergy Therapeutic Group, we help people with disc problems every day. We have successfully treated thousands of people with disc injuries and helped them get back to the activities they love. Our physical therapists are trained to examine your spine and movement to find the root cause of your problem. Then we work with you and your doctor to put together a plan that helps you achieve optimum results.

SYMPTOMS OF A HERNIATED DISC Symptoms of a herniated disc vary greatly depending on the position of the herniated disc and the size of the herniation. Symptoms include: Ache in the low back or neck. R

With herniation in the lower back, radiating pain may develop. This pain may travel through the buttocks and down a leg to the ankle or foot. With herniation in the upper part of the lumbar spine, near the ends of the lowest ribs, you may have pain in the groin or the front of the thigh. With herniation in the neck, you may have pain or numbness in the shoulder blade, chest, arm or hand.
