Between these bones are discs that cushion your neck and allow it to move freely.

Wear and tear or an injury in your neck can result in a narrowing of your spinal cord. Pressure on the nerves in this area can cause pain, numbness or weakness.

Conservative treatment to ease your symptoms may include anti-inflammatory medication, physiotherapy or muscle relaxants to reduce nerve pain. Your consultant may also recommend an epidural injection or a nerve root block.
