How can unbearable pain in the neck after herniation of C5 and C6 discs be treated?
Take medications as advised under a neurologist
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.
Cervical radiculopathy due to disc prolapse responds to medications and physiotherapy in most cases.
Medications like pain killers with muscle relaxants like aceclofenac or etoricoxib with thiocholchicoside can be used.
Pain modulator drugs like pregabalin, gabapentin, amitriptyline or duloxetine can be used too.
Physiotherapy under guidance will strengthen the neck muscle, decreases disc herniation and Pain.
In non responsive cases operation is required.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further information.
