There are many different types of spinal disc problems. Knowing what type of problem you have will give you a better understanding of what your treatment options are. In the article What is a Herniated Disc? you will find information about the different types of spinal disc diseases, symptoms to look for, and the different treatment options that are available to you.
“A slipped disc can happen anywhere in the spine, and surprisingly, a slipped disc does not actually slip. Instead, the disc, which is located between the bones of the spine (vertebrae), splits or ruptures. When this happens, the inner gel-like substance (nucleus pulposus) leaks out. This is called a herniation of the nucleus pulposus—or a herniated disc (sometimes written as herniated disk). People between the ages of 30 and 50 are most at risk for herniation because the elasticity and water content of the nucleus pulposus decrease with age.”
