Disc Herniation Treatment
What is Disc Herniation
The discs of the neck and back have two parts to them; the outer layer, which resembles an onion with many ring, and the inner portion which is similar to jelly.
The outer portion of the disc can tear and the inner portion pushes out but does not travel all the way through the layer. This is called a bulge or a degenerative disc and produces mostly pain in the spine, but not the arms or legs.
The second type of disc issue is when the inner layer tears all the way through the outer portion and presses onto the nerve, causing neck/back and arm/leg pain.
