Anyone know what Protrusion/Herniation MM is enough to cause pain etc?
I was wondering if anyone knew what millimeter of a cervical protrusion/herniation would start to give you pain or warrants perhaps seeing a neurosurgeon for? One of my biggest is 3mm. I just want to make sure my neurologist is correct by saying I don't really have anything that warrants a visit to a NS. Eventually I might want to see one just for an opinion, not for surgery though.
