Neck Pain/Cervical Disc Herniation

Understanding Chronic Pain with Pain Management in San Antonio

The majority of headaches have no underlying significant pathology; it is important, however, to seek the care of a physician or pain specialists, in order to rule out severe cause prior to the commencement of treatment. Headaches can be classified as cluster, tension, and migraine headaches, while secondary types may be associated with pre-existing pathology which may be benign or malignant in origin.

What is Cervical Disc Herniation?

A cervical disc herniation is a condition referring to pain in your upper neck or back. It affects us as we age and sometimes has no symptoms and just occurs out of nowhere. In order to know what causes such condition, you need to understand a little bit about your spinal column and disc.

Know Your Spinal Column

Your spinal cord is made up of bones called the vertebrae. It offers protection for your spinal cord and connects from your brain to the bottom of your spine. Discs, on the other hand, are cushions or shock absorbers for regular activities such as jumping, running, walking, and other strenuous activities that put a wear-and-tear on your body.
