What are the causes of cervical disc herniation? Why did you get the slipped disk in your neck? Most of the time we don’t know what causes the cervical disc to herniate and it just happens. Usually herniations occur in people aged 20 – 40 and may be associated with trauma but frequently happen without any specific injury to the neck. Having symptoms of cervical disc herniation such as┬áneck pain with arm pain, numbness, tingling and weakness may be something that you wake up with or even following a sneeze. Although not hereditary, they frequently run in families. People with herniated disks should not focus on or get depressed about finding the cause of herniation but rather put energy towards healing and getting better. There are numerous treatments available and the most effective of these options are listed on our website’s surgical and non-surgical treatment pages. The most effective and best treatments are reviewed there by Dr. Seth Neubardt and Dr. Jack Stern, noted as the top surgeons who specialize in anterior cervical discectomy and fusion(ACDF) surgery as well as disc replacement procedures.
