Spinal disc herniation

Spinal disc herniation is the condition which affects spine, where the outer, fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc ruptures and squeezes the soft, central portion to bulge out. Disc herniation is usually due to age-related degeneration of the outer ring. This tear in the disc ring may result in the release of chemicals causing inflammation and compresses a nearby nerve which may directly cause severe pain even in the absence of nerve root compression. Most authors favor degeneration of the intervertebral disc as the major cause of spinal disc herniation and cite trauma as a low cause. Disc degeneration occurs both with degenerative disc disease and aging.
