About

Your cervical spine is the uppermost portion of your spine. This area includes your neck bones and discs, which act as shock absorbers between each bone.

Conditions affecting your cervical spine can cause neck pain and pain, numbness or weakness in your arms and legs. Common conditions of the cervical spine include:

  • Cervical disc degeneration — wear and tear of the discs between the bones of the neck
  • Cervical disc herniation (pictured below) — bulging of the discs between the bones of the neck
Herniated Disc in Neck

 

Many cervical spine conditions occur as a normal part of aging. You can also be born with a cervical spine condition (congenital) or inherit one of these conditions (genetic). 

Other causes of cervical spine conditions include injuries or accidents, poor posture, smoking, diabetes and connective tissue disorders.

The spine program at Pelham Medical Center offers a range of treatment options for cervical spine conditions. These include acupuncture, chiropractic care, dry needling, medication therapy, physical therapy and surgery.
