A herniated disc in the neck is called a cervical disc herniation and can cause neck pain, arm pain and upper back pain. Cervical herniated discs can be caused by heavy lifting, injuries and other conditions.
Often, people visit a spine specialist for back pain or neck pain and unknowingly have a herniated disc. A herniated disc in the neck is called a cervical disc herniation and can cause neck pain, arm pain and upper back pain. Cervical herniated discs affect the vertebrae and the spinal discs, which provide support and flexibility to your neck.
Cervical herniated discs occur when the inner part of the discs in your neck are pushed out through a tear in the outer layer of the disc. This herniated disc puts pressure on the nerves in your neck and can cause upper back pain, neck pain, and arm pain.

Cervical herniated discs are often caused by disc degeneration, or weakening of the spinal discs. This can occur gradually over a long period of time due to normal wear and tear and aging. Traumatic injuries such as a fall or strain, whiplash from an auto accident, sports injuries and overuse can also cause a cervical disc herniation.
Patients with a herniated cervical disc (herniated disc in the neck) commonly include symptoms that affect the upper back, neck, shoulder, arms and hands. These symptoms include:

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.Narendra G. ★★★★★

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!Anne ★★★★★
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.Jeff ★★★★★
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.Glen ★★★★★
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.Jen ★★★★★
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.Sharon
