Spinal columns are made from a series of bones known as Vertebrae's. These Vertebrae's are cushioned by Disc's which absorb the shocks from daily activities. Each Disc has two parts, a soft, gelatinous inner portion and a tough outer portion. A Herniated Disc is when the inner portion of a Disc protrudes through the outer portion.
Symptoms may include:
unexplained muscle weakness
tingling, burning or aching sensations in the affected area
Herniated Disc's can be caused by:
age - with age the outer Disc ring can weaken or tear, allowing the inner portion to slip out
twisting or turning motions while lifting an object
being overweight - Disc's must support the additional weight
