Herniated disks c5-c6 & c6-c7, surgery 10 yrs ago, 48 years old, was a good athlete - any suggestions on a workout/stretching plan? Thank you!
I've a herniated disc @ c6/c7 in august '11. Lost all strength in right triceps. Tricepts getting stronger now. How long can full recovery take?
Can take months: If you lost all your strength, the nerve was really pinched. If you recover fully it will take months. Do not stop exercising and strengthening the muscle because once you atrophy that muscle it will become difficult to get full strength back. You may need to get an EMG study done to see the extent of damage if you are not better and may even need a dedicated OT/PT program. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It is possible a cervical epidural could exacerbate an already present herniated disk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have myofascial pain in the neck with a bulging disk at C4 C5 C6 c7. Would this cause burning and numbness pain in the neck and down both arms?
Complex..: Hi, not all disk herniation’s need surgery and can be managed non operatively but this is definitely something that needs to be discussed in person with a neurosurgeon / orthopedic spine surgeon. They will go over your MRI's and your exam and decide if you need surgery or not. If you are having weakness or bowel or bladder issues you should go to the ER right away. ...Read more
as usual, it depends: The severity and location of the herniation as well as any neurologic compromise dictate what activities you should avoid. In general, any heavy lifting should be avoided. ...Read more

Lumbar (Low Back) Herniated Disk (Definition)
Herniated disk is a medical condition in which the gel like disk between the bones of the spine squeezes out of its center position.
