I recently accident when MRI showed herniated disk at C5-C6. Now the herniated disk is causing severe pain and on my second MRI, the doctor concluded that my disk was “hardening” and that there may not be “enough space” for the disk. What does it mean? Is that the source of my pain?

A cervical disc herniation on c5-c6 may or may not be the source of your pain. An MRI scan often does not show what is causing the pain and it is not a test for pain, but rather a test for anatomy. After an accident, it is more likely that your neck pain is caused by soft tissue damage to the muscles or ligaments in the neck. This type of injury cannot be seen in an MRI scan. In general, active rehabilitation programs with physical therapy are the best treatments.
