Neck and Arm Pain
For millions of people suffering around the world, having a 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, bulging discs, or bone spurs.
Back pain not only affects millions around the world, it affects people of all ages. Because it can impact both young and old, lower back pain is also one of the leading causes of disability worldwide, creating financial hardships for individuals and their families. Lumbar disc degeneration and injury are common conditions that can lead to back pain. Lower back pain can be triggered by overexertion, sports injuries, car accidents, or simply getting older.

The M6 artificial discs are the only discs designed with a shock-absorbing nucleus and fiber annulus that work together to replicate the controlled range of movement and cushioning effect of the natural disc. By allowing your spine to move naturally, the M6 artificial discs are designed to potentially minimize the stress to adjacent discs and other vertebral structures.
