Compresion of cervical nerve (0)

A herniated cervical disc occurs when a nerve root is irritated and/or pinched as a result of a cervical disc’s inner core extruding through the outer core and coming in contact with the nerve root. Depending on the location of the cervical disc herniation and which cervical nerve is affected (most often C6, C7; sometimes C5, C8), various cervical symptoms may occur.
