A cervical herniated disk is a condition that occurs when the soft tissue between the cervical vertebrae in the neck ruptures or bulges outwards, compressing the spinal cord or nerve roots. It is mostly seen in adults over the age of 35. Having a cervical herniated disk can be a painful and debilitating condition, but with proper treatment and care, it is possible to manage symptoms and improve the condition along with medical advice.

Causes

Ageing and degeneration of the spinal discs

Trauma or injury to the neck

Poor posture or repetitive stress on the neck

Injury due to improper warm up, wrong exercise, or overuse

Symptoms

Pain in the neck, shoulders, arms, or hands

Numbness or tingling in the arms or hands

Weakness in the arms or hands

Home remedies

Rest and avoid activities that aggravate the symptoms.

Do neck stretches and exercises to improve flexibility and strength.

Consider yoga therapy and alternative treatments such as Sujok Therapy
