A herniated disc, also known as a disc bulge, occurs when there is a problem with one of the rubbery cushions, known as discs, situated between the vertebrae, the bones that stack to form the spine. These discs act as shock absorbers, providing flexibility and cushioning to the spine.
When a disc herniates, it means that the soft inner material of the disc pushes through the tougher outer layer. This can result in compression or irritation of nearby nerves, leading to pain, numbness, or weakness in the affected area. The terms “herniated disc” and “disc bulge” are often used interchangeably, referring to the same condition.
The symptoms of a herniated disc can vary based on the location and extent of the herniation. Common symptoms include pain, tingling, or weakness in the back, neck, arms, or legs. Factors such as aging, wear and tear, and sudden injuries can contribute to the development of herniated discs.
Treatment for a herniated disc may involve conservative measures such as rest, physical therapy, and pain management. In some cases, more invasive interventions, such as epidural injections or surgery, may be considered if symptoms persist or worsen. Proper diagnosis and an individualized treatment plan are essential for addressing the specific needs of individuals with herniated discs.
