Did you know there is a disc in your spine, lodged between each pair of bones providing a cushion like protection for your bones? These discs are there to mostly absorb any kind of sudden shock. The disc has a soft interior and a hard outer layer. If the outer layer gets damaged, the soft interior can become fractured. This is what is commonly known as a herniated disc. Depending on the individual and the severity of the condition, a herniated disc may or may not cause pain. In the case it is applying pressure on your nerves, you are bound to feel some pain. Your spinal cord can become damaged due to this condition. There is good news however; patients with this medical condition usually make a full recovery.
It can also be caused by a sudden strain or traumatic injury. And it can occur as age related degeneration.
Can a herniated disc be prevented?
The vertebrae are supported by abdominal muscles so exercising to strengthen your abdomen will certainly help decrease the chances of having a herniated disc. Experiencing stress or being overweight, lifting heavy items and poor posture can also contribute to it.
