About Augusta Cervical Spine Disc Herniation & Augusta Chiropractic Care

Cervical spine disc herniation is the disruption of the integrity of the normal intervertebral disc, the pad of cartilage that sits between the vertebral bones of the spine.

Mild disruption of the disc may result in cervical disc degeneration.

More serious disruption of the disc may result in a contained cervical disc herniation or a non-contained cervical disc herniation.
