Discs are protective shock-absorbing pads between the bones and the spine. These discs are referred to as intervertebral discs. Even though the disc does not ‘slip’, it may split or bulge. This may cause the disc cartilage to fail allowing the inner gel portion of the disc to escape into the surrounding areas. This gel places pressure on the spinal cord to cause symptoms of pain or weakness. Many people experience this symptom from a herniated disc.
Slipped disc is a condition whereby portions of an abnormal, injured or degenerated disc have come out against nerve tissues. The low back is the most affected area. Aging normally leads to slipped disc. Degeneration, loss of elasticity of the discs, injury from improper lifting, etc. can cause slipped disc.
The pain of a slipped disc can be very problematic; it may result in further spinal disc damage. Under stress, the disc’s inner material will swell and push through its tough outer membrane. The whole disc becomes distorted. All or part of the core material comes out through the outer casing at a weak spot and presses against its surrounding nerves. If further injury causes the membrane to rupture, then the disc material can injure the spinal cord. This causes great pain. If further disc damage occurs, then the condition may become permanent. In some instances, the injured disc can cause pain. Most of the disc injuries occur in the lumbar region of the lower back. 10% of this injuries cause damage to the upper spine. Not all slipped discs put pressure on nerves. People can have deformed discs without experiencing any pain. Men and women between the ages of 30 and 50 suffer from slipped discs most.
