Cervical Degenerative Disk Disease is a condition in which the disks in between the neck bones begin to deteriorate and age earlier or at a faster than normal rate. This deterioration that happens with Cervical Degenerative Disk Disorder arises as the disks dehydrate and thus lose height. This disorder can cause severe neck pain and even tingling or pain in the arms because of the pressure put on the nerve roots in the spine. Treatment for Cervical Degenerative Disk Disease generally takes a cautious approach due to the fragility of the spinal cord, so surgery, which is normally a spine fusion, is avoided at almost all costs. Instead, pain is managed with pain killers, massage, heat application and physical therapy.
