Cervical Herniated Disc




Herniated disc can occur in the neck and it can affect neural structures, explains Dr. Theresa Pazionis, Orthopedic & Spine Surgeon with Miami Cancer Institute.
The expert says Myelopathy is called when somebody has herniated discs in the neck.
Herniated discs in the neck can cause difficulties with balance bowel and bladder and it affects all the nerve roots there from down, because when herniated discs happen in the neck, they are compressing the spinal cord and every single nerve that’s below that level could be affected, the doctor explains.
Numbness, tingling or weakness in any arm and awkward walking are some of the symptoms of cervical herniated disc, she says.
