Cervical Spondylosis / Neck Pain
Neck pain is the sensation of discomfort in the neck area due to tightness of neck muscle.
A herniated (slipped) disk occurs when all or part of a disk in the spine is forced through a weakened part of the disk. This places pressure on nearby nerves.
- Spondylosis – degenerative arthritis and osteophytes
- Spinal stenosis – a narrowing of the spinal canal
