Dr. Ebraheim’s computer animated instructional video clip explains Neck Pain, Cervical Disc Herniation & Cervical Radiculopathy.
Cervical disc herniation takes place most often at the level C6-C7. It could take place at C5-C6.
The person will certainly suffer neck discomfort as a result of nerve root inflammation with pain emitting to the ipsilateral top extremity. The patient might complain of paresthesia, weakness and numbness. Coughing, sneezing and neck motions make the pain worse.
Mindful assessment of the client is very important. Each nerve entails ed will certainly reveal its impact on the motor power, experience and reflexes.
Herniated disc C3-C4 lump (impacts C4 nerve origin).
– C4 sensory deficit around the shoulder location.
– The diaphragm is provided mainly by C4, can impact the breathing system.
Herniated disc C4-C5 lump (influences nerve root C5).
– Sensory C5: affects feeling around the shoulder area.
– C5 arms response is mainly C5.
– Motor: deltoid C5, C5-C6 elbow joint flexion.
Herniated disc C5-C6 lump (influences nerve origin C6).
– Sensory C6: affects experience in the forefinger and the thumb.
– C6: brachioradialis reflex.
– Motor: C6 wrist expansion (Extensor carpi radialis longus & brevis), C5, C6 biceps: arm joint flexion.
Herniated disc C6-C7 bulge (impacts nerve root C7).
– Sensory: influences the area of the center finger.
– Motor C7: elbow joint expansion (triceps), wrist flexion, finger extension.
– Reflexes C7: triceps reflex.
Herniated disc C7-T1 bulge (impacts nerve origin C8).
– Sensory C8: affects the area of the median 2 fingers as well as the medial part of the lower arm.
– Motor: C8 finger flexion.
– No reflexes.
Herniated disc T1-T2 bulge (influences nerve root T1).
– Sensory T1.
– T1 interossei muscle mass (abduction & adduction), the patient will certainly not have the ability to spread out the fingers or bring them more detailed together.
– No reflexes.
