Help For Those Suffering from Discs Injuries
Spinal discs are round, flat pads located between the vertebrae of the spine that provide shock and absorption. There are many roles that the spine plays throughout your life, and stress and aging have been shown to contribute to discs injury in the spine. Disc problems can be described using terms such as herniated disc, bulging disc, and pinched nerve. Pain can be caused by herniated or bulging discs. Sometimes also referred to as a "slipped disc," this condition occurs when a tear in the outer ring lets the soft portion in the center of the disc bulge out.
Generally, there are two main causes of spinal pain that a sufferer may experience:
- Disc pain: Aging of the spinal discs has resulted in the loss of flexibility and absorption.
- Pinched nerve: The inner material of the spinal disc is leaking out and touching the root of the nerve.
