I am new to this forum, so forgive me if sound uneducated concerning a herniated c6 and c7 disk.
I had a sudden injury on 10-16-11 from lifing a very heavy object. Pain was severe and lasted for 3 weeks. I had a MRI that indictaes that I have a herniated c6 disk with a 3mm mass on the spine. C7 is is not herniated, but has slipped. The pain is better and I begin Pt tomorrow. My question is, if the disk is herniated how can this pain go away? Will this always cause me pain if I reinjure? Right now I have neck pain arm pain and numbness in my index finger. will it always be this way.
