“Could Your Back Pain Be A Herniated Disc?” TREATING HERNIATED DISCS

Do you suffer from back or neck pain? At times this pain can radiate indicating a potential problemwith the discs. The bones in your spine are called the vertebrae. The vertebrae are held together and in place by ligaments and small discs that act as shock absorbers. These control your spine’s range of movement, flexibility and keep the spinal cord safe fromdamage. However, when a disc is damaged, the inside can squeeze out of place and either bulge or herniate, leaving the spinal nerves susceptible to damage. When this occurs, the result is called a “herniated disc”, “slipped” or “ruptured disc.” (continued inside)
