What is a Slipped Disc
A herniated disk refers to a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (disks) between the individual bones (vertebrae) that stack up to make your spine.
The disks are the joints between the vertebra that allow the neck bones and back bones to move, so a person can turn their head or pick up something off the floor. When the disks wear out or are damaged, a piece of the desk can slip out of place and pinched nerves or cause the disk to, painfully, work incorrectly.
A spinal disk is a little like a jelly donut, with a softer center encased within a tougher exterior. Sometimes called a slipped disk or a ruptured disk, a herniated disk occurs when some of the softer “jelly” pushes out through a tear in the tougher exterior.
