Neck Based Procedures
What can happen with my neck?
The spinal canal and intervertebral foraminae are bony tunnels in the spine through which run the spinal cord and spinal nerves (nerve roots) respectively. They protect the nerves and spinal cord by providing a safe path for them to travel. But when the size of these tunnels is reduced, there is less room for the spinal nerves and/or spinal cord, leading to pressure on these structures.
Symptoms of neural (nerve or spinal cord) compression include pain, aching, stiffness, numbness, tingling sensations, and weakness. Spinal nerves branch out to service the whole body, and so these symptoms may radiate into other parts of the body. For exambple, cervical nerve root compression (pinched nerves in the neck) can cause symptoms in the shoulders, arms, and hands.
