What is Herniated disk?

A herniated disk, also known as a slipped disk or ruptured disk, is a medical condition in which the cushion-like material between the vertebrae in the spine bulges out of position.

Herniated disks most commonly occur in the lower back or the neck, but they can also occur in the upper back. The condition can be caused by a variety of factors, including age-related wear and tear, injury and trauma.

If you think that you’re suffering from a herniated disk, it’s crucial that you speak to a specialist who can accurately diagnose your pain and find the best treatment.
