Cervical disc herniation occurs when the inner contents of a disc in the neck ruptures outwards. The ruptured disc material puts pressure on the nerves that are exiting the spine. This often presents as severe neck pain, neck muscle spasm, and/or significant pain in the arm. Patients often notice weakness, numbness, or tingling on the side of the herniated disc.
