Herniated Discs and How to Treat Them
Herniated discs are a very painful condition that many people face. This issue is present in the spinal cord and causes a large amount of discomfort and secondary effects. In the spinal cord there are dozens of discs that are situated between the vertebrae that make up the spine. A herniated disc occurs when one of these discs, which is often referred to as a jelly, escapes its desired position through a tear in the spinal exterior. As a result, the disc starts to push on neighboring nerves, which send an insupportable amount of pain throughout the back. In some cases, the herniated disc does not disrupt the nerves around it, rendering it painless and often undiagnosed.
