More specifically, can the cause of a cervical disc disorder be specifically related to an injury that collapses a disc? A patient falls 10ft down, with head turned 90 degrees to the right at impact. The body, follows with weight applying pressure and causing movement forward and downwards on the neck. Can this impact cause Cervical DDD? With no family history, or previous complaints.
