What is Torn disk?

A torn disk occurs when the outer layer of a spinal disk tears causing the soft inner material to leak out.

This can result in anything from slight herniation to complete disk herniation, causing pain and discomfort in your neck, back, and other parts of your body.

Traumatic injury is a common cause of torn disks, but age-related degeneration can also be a contributing factor.

It's important to seek specialist attention as early as possible if you suspect you have a torn disk. There are several treatment options available to help manage pain and help you get back to normal.
