C2-3 central disc protrusion -> can this cause me neck pain? I've had it for more than 4months. How do I get rid of it?

Disc Protrusion. Cervical disc prolapse at c2-3 level can cause neck pain radiating to head or both arms with numbness. To start with we recommend pt, neck exercises, nonsteroidal anti inflammatory analgesics, cervical collar. Next step is epidural injections which can be repeated depending on the response. Cervical discectomy is considered after failed conservative treatment.
