Injury or weakness can cause the inner portion of the disk to protrude through the outer ring. This is known as a slipped, herniated, or prolapsed disk. This causes pain and discomfort. If the slipped disk compresses one of your spinal nerves, you may also experience numbness and pain along the affected nerve.
A herniated disc is a prevalent source of neck, arm, back, and leg pain is typically seen in adults between 30 and 50 years of age.
If you are experiencing pain or numbness in the neck, arm, lower back, or leg, you could be suffering from a herniated disc.
Seek medical attention if your neck or back pain travels down your arm or leg, or if it's accompanied by numbness, tingling or weakness.
Up to 90 percent of patients with herniated discs can be successfully treated without surgery.
