What is Disc Herniation?
Disc herniation is a condition of the cervical or lumbar spine, happens when the soft, jelly-like substance inside a spinal disc pushes through a crack in the disc’s exterior. Sometimes called a slipped disc or ruptured disc, it can be quite painful, though some people do not suffer any ill effects.
