Cervical Disc Replacement for Pain Relief

Before considering surgery, you should exhaust your other options. These include lifestyle changes, exercise, diet, and medication. A combination of these may be most effective to provide relief. For example, if you have a habit of whipping your head around quickly, you may find significant improvement by learning to slowly rotate. Simple range of motion exercises may be useful in loosening tight muscles when a constant stiff neck is the issue. Medication can provide relief in the form of pain-blocking NSAIDs for chronic neck pain. If nothing else seems to work, your doctor may have you look into the possibility of surgery. For neck pain, neck stiffness, headaches, pain traveling down the arms, weakness in the extremities, or any combination of these symptoms, cervical disc replacement surgery may be an option. Before proceeding with any surgery, it is best to ask your doctor about the advantages, disadvantages, and any alternatives. Surgery should only be pursued as a substitute to non-invasive treatment options.
