Disc Herniation refers to a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (disks) between the vertebrae in the spine. The spinal column is made of vertebrae that are separated by cartilage discs that act as cushions. The spinal disks are like a jelly having a softer centar encased within a tougher exterior. These spinal disks absorb the shock in the spinal column and if for any reason they get damaged or degenerated, they can tear or pop up making compression on the spinal nerves.
