For millions of people suffering around the world, having pain in the neck is no laughing matter. Neck and arm pain can be the result of an accident, sitting hunched over a computer all day, or simply the wear and tear of normal life. Neck and arm pain is often the result of cervical disc degeneration, a condition in which a vertebral disc in the neck has deteriorated or been damaged due to the natural aging process or injury. Examples of cervical disc degeneration include ruptured discs, flattening or thinning discs, or bone spurs.
Professional surfer Koa Rothman hurt his neck when he fell while surfing a big wave in Hawaii. After his injury, Koa was warned by his spine surgeons that he needed to have surgery or else he would have to quit surfing. Koa carefully considered his options before choosing to have an artificial cervical disc replacement procedure. Watch the video and see how the M6-C™ Artificial Cervical Disc disc helped Koa get back on his board and start surfing worldwide again.
