Inflammation typically will accompany an injury like a disc issue.  I find that ice works well whether you pain is in the neck from a cervical disc or in the low back from a lumbar disc.  Putting the spine in good alignment will help hold the discs in place better.

If prescription medication doesn't help and chiropractic doesn't give relief you may be referred for a steriod injection which reduces inflammation.
