herniated Disc

Herniated Disc

The intervertebral discs are located between each vertebral column. The discs act as shock absorbers between each vertebra functioning as stabilizers of the joint. The discs are composed of two parts, a hard outer layer, and a soft core.

A tear in the outer layer can allow leakage of soft central portion to the inner zone spinal canal, causing irritation or pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots at that level.
This condition is called a herniated disc.

Disc herniations can occur at any level of the spine, but occur most frequently in the lumbar region.
The next most common area is in the cervical region, followed by the area of the thoracic spine.
