San Diego Lawyer Helping Victims
The cervical spine (neck) is a group of seven bones (C1 through C7 vertebrae), each of which are separated by discs. These discs allow spine to move, and act as shock absorbers. Any injuries to the cervical spine can cause serious problems because most of your body’s nerves pass through this area of the neck.
Neck pain can be caused by a variety of reasons, not all of which stem from an accident. Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs
- Bulging discs
- And more
If neck pain is bothersome, it may require a specialist. Usually an orthopaedic or neurosurgeon will be diagnosing and treating your pain or condition.
Herniated discs can add pressure to a nerve root and result in the following symptoms:
- Arm and neck pain
- Numbness or weakness in the arm
- Tingling in the fingers or hand.
