There are both contemporary and primitive reasons for the formation of a disc herniation in the neck, ie. “neck disc herniation” or referred to as medically “cervical disc herniation”, “cervical radiculopathy”, “cervical disc protrusion”, “cervical bulging disc”. As a contemporary reason, the working conditions required by the modern lifestyle; for example, working while sitting in front of the computer or steering wheel may be accused. As a primitive reason, despite all the scientific developments, still sitting, lying and even working in places designed centuries ago might be given. So the asymmetrical loads we are faced with in our everyday lives are very dangerous.
The lumbar disc herniation is actually a socioeconomic disease, that is, it effects young people; preventing them from active life. It should be remembered that our discs start to age from the age of twenty, because the waist is the most enforced part of the human body. Hence, the cup that is filled in our youth with the wrong things we have done blatantly; can, in an unlucky day overflow – sometimes due to lifting a heavy load, reverse movement, or with only a sneeze. Of course, it is important not to forget that smoking is one of the most important factors that cause harm to our lumbar discs.
