What is a herniated disc?

Disc herniation occurs when the very tough, but flexible ring that surrounds a thick gelatinous center becomes damaged leading to bulges and/or ruptures. While herniated discs do not always necessarily cause symptoms, they are usually and often quite painful. Some of the most common symptoms associated with disc herniation include weakness, numbness, and pain in the lower back, buttocks, and legs.

What is a disc herniation?

A herniated disc refers to an issue of the spine in which the interior portion of a spinal disc (nucleus pulposus) pushes outward through a rupture in the disc's exterior (annulus fibrosus). Herniations can lead to a number of problems including irritation of nearby nerves, numbness, weakness, and usually, extreme pain. Some literature compares the pain of a herniated disc to the pain of labor. However, in some cases, symptoms of the herniation are more subtle, leading to the issue to go uncorrected.
