Deep tendon reflexes (BTR and TTR) of upper extremities were normal. Pathologic reflexes (Hoffman, Wartenberg and Babinski) were negative. Deep tendon reflexes (PTR and ATR) of left lower extremity were negative; the right PTR was negative and right ATR was positive. Bulbocavernous reflex was negative. Plain radiographs of the cervical spine revealed no spinal canal stenosis and no fracture dislocations. Almost all cervical spinal cord injuries are a result of severe traumatic accidents such as traffic accidents, labor accidents or sport accidents. The rate of traumatic cervical disc herniation accompanied by spinal injury using myelography and CT was low. The possibility of cervical spinal cord injury during bench press exercises should be considered in patients with cervical disc herniation. Patients with cervical disc herniation should be counseled about the risks of participating in sports, including those without significant neck motion.
