Disks are Mother Nature’s shock absorbers located between the vertebrae. A herniated disk is when the disk is pushed out of the normal anatomical position and thus results in pain and discomfort.
Disk herniation may cause headache, neck, arm, mid-back, chest wall, low back or leg pain and/or numbness. Usually patients will not need surgery for herniated disks. Either the herniated disk or leaking nucleus pulposis can cause irritation of the nerve roots passing near the disc. Disk’s may herniate through vigorous physical activities, trauma, or just spontaneously.
