Cervical discs: Steer clear of too aggressive manipulation. Consider additional opinions.

Depends: Please alert the chiropractor to your herniated discs. Gentle chiropractic may not cause additional damage. In presence of neural signs or symptoms (tingling), robust neck manipulation is not advised (can cause nerve damage). Who advised chiropractic over seeing a spine specialist for this?
