Cervical reconstruction

Motion preserving therapy options

A cervical disc herniation is caused by an incorrect or excessive load on the intervertebral disc. If the load becomes too great, disc tissue presses into the spinal canal and irritates the outgoing nerve roots or even the spinal cord.

Affected individuals then complain of a variety of complaints that are characteristic symptoms of a cervical disc herniation:

  • Hood-shaped neck headaches
  • Frequent dizziness
  • Sensory disturbances in the legs
  • radiating pain into the arms
  • Movement restrictions of the cervical spine
  • Weakness in the arms and hands
  • Numbness in the area of the pinched nerve

If the herniated disc does not regress on its own or the symptoms increase, disc surgery is indicated. This is especially true if symptoms such as paralysis (muscle weakness), dizziness or gait disturbances occur. Symptoms originating in the cervical spine must be clarified by an expert at an early stage in order to avoid irreversible damage to the nerves and spinal cord, including paraplegia.
