I have been requested to go to PT for a bulging disc in C4-C5. I have occassional tingling in my neck and constant numbness near the scapula region.

What can I expect from PC for a bulging C4-C5?


  • Some people respond very well to PT, others do not. Depends on the individual.
  • Physical Therapy is different for each person. It depends on the shape your in too. Most doctors say that 70 percent of people with spine problems heal or symptoms are relieved with PT. I had good luck with the aqua therapy. Having a positive attitude helps also. good luck
