Intervertebral discs are located between the bones of your neck.
Discs are the shock absorbers of your spine.
Pressure on the disc, often from bending, twisting or heavy lifting, can cause part of the disc to bulge out.
The bulged disc pushes against a nerve and causes nerve irritation
This can cause neck, shoulder, and shooting arm pain.
Treatment includes observation, anti-inflammatory medications, injections or surgery.
Fusion or disc replacement are surgical options.
