What is a Herniated Disc?
A herniated disc – also referred to as a slipping or bulging disc – is a fragment of one of the rubbery discs between the vertebrae that stack together to form the spine. Typically, discs that become herniated are in the early stage of degermation. Because the spinal canal has limited space, it is unsuitable for a displaced herniated disc fragment. When displacement occurs, the disc presses upon the spinal nerves and can cause severe pain. A herniated disc can occur in any part of the spine but are most common in the lower back and neck.
