Have you been told that you have a slipped disc or a disc injury? These kinds of injuries can vary from mild to quite severe, but most require the attention of a highly trained spinal specialist. Within your spine are little pads that lie between your spinal segments, or vertebrae. These pads are called intervertebral discs. Each has a tough outer ring and a soft gel-like center. Your discs both join and separate your vertebrae. These discs serve as cushions or shock absorbers, so that the bones don’t make contact with each other as you move. Without discs you would literally be unable to move your upper body.
What is a Disc Injury?
If you are diagnosed with a disc injury there are a few different types that you need to know about.
A protruding disc is when the gel in the middle of the disc is pushed out or bulging, and is asymmetrical or imbalanced in different places. This may result in pinching and irritation of the nerve roots at that point causing you pain and discomfort.
A herniated disc happens when the disc material ruptures to the point that the gel pushes outward. This can also cause pain and numbness due to the irritation of the nerves, and can be very serious in some cases.
A disc extrusion is the worst type of disc injury. What it means is that the gel balloons extensively into the area outside the vertebrae or breaks off from the disc. This tends to result in considerable back pain and limitation of range of motion.
