A condition of the cervical spine (neck) or lumbar spine, often quite painful, disc herniations happens when the soft, jelly-like center of a spinal disc pushes through a fissure in the disc’s exterior. It is sometimes called a slipped disc or ruptured disc, and while some people do not suffer any ill effects from disc herniations, others are deeply affected. In addition to intense pain, a herniated disc can cause numbness or tingling, sciatica, and muscle weakness.
There are many causes for disc herniation. It is often the result of age related disc degeneration, or degenerative disc disease, but can also be caused by improper lifting, trauma from a fall or blow to the back, excess weight, or even a physically demanding job. In some cases, it is not possible to identify the cause of a herniated disc.
