Herniated Disc in the Neck- Lakewood

Neck Pain-Renew Chiropractic-Lakewood

Another common cause of shoulder, neck, and arm pain is a herniated disc in the neck. Symptoms of a herniated disc in the neck may include pain ranging from dull to sharp that radiates from the arm into the fingers, or numbness and tingling in the shoulder and arm.

In fact, symptoms of herniated cervical discs often mimic the same symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. In some cases, a herniated cervical disc may compress down on the spine and cause spinal cord compression. Symptoms of spinal cord compression include difficulty using the hands and feet for fine motor skills, awkwardness while walking, and tingling sensations in the legs.

Neck pain may also present behind the ear and result in what feels like an earache. Neck and ear pain can also be caused by TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder. Tense muscles in the neck may also result in ear pain.

Neck Pain and Headaches

Headaches caused by neck pain are responsible for over 20 percent of chronic headaches. Most headaches which are caused by neck pain are related to strain of the muscles within the neck, such as sitting in one position staring at a computer screen or practicing poor posture. Others can be related to damaged discs and joints located within the neck.

These are often called cervicogenic headaches. In this case while the source of pain is in the neck, the pain is often felt in back of the head, behind the eyes, or into the temples. Traditional doctors often misdiagnose these headaches as migraine or cluster headaches and prescribe medication. Some may never be correctly diagnosed and treated.
