Our expert says:
The C5/C6 region of the neck or Cervical spine, is the most susceptible to injuries and often postural deviations. As a result we very often encounter some disc degeneration in this area. If there are serious neurological symtoms and acute pain, then I would recommend consulting a neurosurgeon for further opinion. A second opinion in your friend's case is possibly the best route to follow before any radical surgery is considered.
