In brief: Cervical disc

Not unusual for patients in their 50-60s to have wear of their discs in both neck and low back which as they wear produces narrowing of the bony tunnels leading away from the spinal cord.
, When this occurs the nerves in both the neck and low back become pinched , This can lead to pain , numbness and tingling , weakness So this is not a case of spreading,Rather it's a process occurring simultaneo
