HERNIATED DISC

What is herniated disc (spinal disc herniation)?   The intervertebral disc consists of a jelly-like center (nucleus pulposus) and an outer fibrous ring. After puberty, because the disc is not vascularized and therefore has more reduced ability to regenerate, degenerative changes begin to occur. First degenerative changes appear with the loss of water, as a consequence, the height of the intervertebral discs is reduced, and cracks in the rubbery outer ring may occur. A herniated disc occurs when some of the nuclei push out through a tear in the outer ring and presses on the nerve; it is also called a slipped disc or ruptured disc (spinal disc herniation).The intervertebral disc consists of a jelly-like center (nucleus pulposus) and an outer fibrous ring.
