More information about a slipped disc

A slipped disc is an informal term used to describe a damaged disc in the spine, often a herniated or bulging disc. The term “slipped disc” refers to a disc that has moved past its normal boundaries within the spinal cord, slipping out of alignment and possibly compressing a nerve root nearby.

Patients with a slipped disc may experience symptoms of pain and limited mobility, depending on the severity of the disc damage. These symptoms are a good indication that you should schedule an appointment with your doctor to determine the exact cause of your slipped disc and the treatments available to you.

For patients diagnosed with a slipped disc, it’s important to research the condition, its causes and available treatments so you can make an informed decision about your spine care needs. Take a moment to read through these helpful articles about slipped discs:
