Library of herniated disc articles

A herniated disc is a degenerative spine condition that causes discs to wear and lose their elasticity, often causing the disc’s tough outer layer to rupture. As a result, pain, numbness, tingling and weakness can often develop, affecting your way of life. Sometimes, patients with a herniated disc are unable to walk, drive, work or participate in fun activities like playing a game of basketball or walking along the shore.
