What Is a Herniated Disc?

Herniated or “slipped” discs occur when the cartilage in between bone ends that acts as a shock absorber are displaced. Herniated discs are among the most common causes of back and neck pain.
Herniated discs can affect any part of the spine. Even so, most herniated discs occur in the lower back (lumbar spine). A few occur in the neck (cervical spine) and a few in the upper back (thoracic spine).

If your herniated disc pain isn’t responding to medication and rest, it’s probably time to seek the advice of a specialist. Frontier Physical Medicine is organized to determine the cause and severity of your herniated disc and craft a treatment plan that minimizes your pain and long-term complications.

What Causes a Herniated Disc?

Herniated discs may result from a single excessive strain or injury. Discs degenerate naturally, and the ligaments that hold them in place weaken as one ages. As this degeneration progresses, a relatively minor strain or twisting movement can rupture a disc.
Several areas along the spine can be affected by herniated discs in certain individuals who are more susceptible to disc problems. Several studies have shown that families with several members suffering from herniated discs may be predisposed.
