What Is Cervical Disc Herniation?

Anatomy of Cervical Disc Herniation

Cervical disc herniation is a condition caused by a ruptured disc. When this occurs, the gelatinous material known as the nucleus pulpous inside a cervical disc breaks through the outer cervical disc wall. The material from the herniated disc compresses an exiting spinal nerve, called cervical radiculopathy, the spinal cord itself or both. This condition causes pain in various parts of your body, as well as other symptoms.

Your cervical spine provides flexibility to your neck and stability to your head. This section of your spine comprises six cervical discs lying between the vertebrae to absorb shocks. The discs facilitate movement in your neck. With age, injury or disease, a cervical disc can degenerate, leading to spinal disorders, including cervical disc herniation.

The pain and other symptoms caused by a herniated disc in the cervical spine can alter your life and require urgent treatment. Dr. Amr Hosny, a board-certified spine doctor, along with his team at the New York- and New Jersey-based Spine & Rehab Group, uses advanced medical technology to ensure a correct diagnosis and targeted cervical herniated disc treatment.

What Are Symptoms of Cervical Disc Herniation?

If you’re experiencing nagging neck pain, it may be due to a herniated cervical disc. Neck pain, a debilitating health condition, affects 30 to 50 percent of adults in the country. Symptoms vary, depending on which disc ruptures and the location of the pressure from the herniated cervical disc. Some symptoms that point to a cervical herniated disc include:

If you notice these symptoms, consult a spine specialist for a firm diagnosis. Dr. Hosny carries out a thorough examination and diagnostic tests to rule out other spinal problems, including shoulder injuries, cervical degenerative disc disease, cervical facet syndrome, or cervical slipped or bulging disc.

What Leads to a Herniated Cervical Disc?

Every herniated disc is unique. Your spine specialist uses your medical history and reports from the diagnostic tests to pinpoint the cause of your pain. Causes of a cervical herniated disc include:

By identifying the underlying cause of the herniated disc, your spinal doctor can offer a more effective treatment plan. The team at the Spine & Rehab Group relies on modern technology to detect the herniated disc and other medical issues.

patient TESTIMONIALS ★★★★★

I came to the spine and rehab group for my back and leg pain. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The doctors were very knowledgeable and took time to explain what was causing my pain and answer all my questions. I felt comfortable having my procedure done in their state of the art surgery center, where the staff made you feel at ease. They are very easy to reach and available to answer all your questions.

The entire staff at The Spine & Rehab group is great. They are so helpful and kind. The doctors really take time to talk to their patients and answer any and all of the questions that I had. I've had office visits and procedures done and everyone to the front desk, to the nurses. and the doctors were just great and knowledgeable. They really got me feeling better as well. Since I starting going there my pain has improved greatly! I would recommend The Spine & Rehab Group to everyone!

I always recommend The Spine & Rehab Group to people dealing with pain, I even tell my other doctors what wonderful doctors they are.

Val B.

These days it’s hard to find a professional, yet extremely caring physicians office, particularly in the field of Pain Management. Dr. Hosny, Dr. Chu, physician’s assistant Summer and the entire staff have managed to make this happen. Robin helped me many times with insurance to ensure that I got my shots in a timely manner (Hi Robin!). I’ve been going to this office for about three years and I couldn’t be more pleased!


I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.


I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.


I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.


I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.
